What is New Immigrant Refugee Vision (NIRV)?

After hosting a viewing and discussion on October 26, 2018, The Diversity Council and Rochester Public Schools Community Education have purchased viewing rights to several short films created by new immigrants and refugees in the United States. 

We share these films with our community to amplify their insider perspectives on the challenges immigrants face and their contributions to American culture, economy, and social fabric.

CSFilm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to stories rooted in local perspectives often under-represented in the media.

It Matters​.

Immigration, refugees, and immigration policy are critical issues for many American communities.  We believe that for people from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds to make responsible and equitable decisions about their communities, they need to learn about each other’s experiences, concerns, and needs.
