Bronx CC, Lehman and Hostos CC along with some non-profit organizations are hosting the Bronx Social Justice Matters Film Festival.
Event Date: October 22 – 25, 2021
This unique event, features films from around the world devoted to a global culture of equality. Seventy films were submitted from across the United States and as far away as Australia. The seventeen that were chosen by a panel of eight judges (also from around the country and the world!) cover topics as varied and timely as sexual abuse in sports (End Game); racial inequality in higher education (Rigged); El Salvador’s 20-40 year prison terms for abortion (Indebted to All Women); the plight of Syrian refugee women(Strength Among Us); the loss of one’s day in court (The Vanishing Trial) along with astonishing student entries (Every Color at Once and Sundown Town), just to name a few.
Due to COVID 19, this year the festival will be held virtually from Friday, October 22nd through October 25th. During that time, ticket holders will be able to stream seventeen films at their convenience; attend live panels focusing on Social Justice Advocacy as well as “Ask the Filmmaker” with filmmakers whose works were selected for this Festival. On Sunday, October 24th, at 5:00 pm, the winners and prizes in four categories will be announced. $1000 for First Place in Feature Length Documentary and $500 each in the Short Form Narrative, Short Form Documentary and Student categories.
