Journey’s End Refugee Services Inc. cordially invites you to a very special film festival on refugees in 2018-19 beginning with a series of extraordinary documentaries on the refugee experience in the U.S. and culminating in a two-day grand finale of three outstanding international films to celebrate World Refugee Day in June.

Proceeds will benefit the many programs at Journey’s End, which serve thousands of refugees, immigrants, asylees and other communities in Western New York each year. Please visit the website to learn more about the vital programs and initiatives for clients. The film festival has been curated to make this the most exciting and unique cinematic “happening” in Buffalo over the next year. Whether you are passionate about the plight of refugees or just love great, thought-provoking filmmaking, we have something for everyone. Congolese auteurs in Montana; poetry and paintings of Baghdad; refugees confronting white supremacy in Maine; a women-run food truck in Beirut; a Syrian, a Finn and a sushi restaurant in Helsinki are just the beginning.

All films are in English with subtitles and will be screened in the theater at Journey’s End, conveniently located in the Tri-Main Center at 2495 Main Street, Suite 530, Buffalo, NY, 14214. There is ample parking in lots on Halbert, Jewett and Rodney Streets. For more information, email Sarah Signorino at signoris@canisius.edu or follow Journey’s End on Facebook for the latest news and views on refugee issues and the film festival.
