BRINGING POWERFUL THOUGHT PROVOKING FILMS AND CONVERSATION TO COMMUNITY

 

We love films! Great filmmaking can entertain us, make us wonder, encourage us to question our beliefs and help us see beyond ourselves. By understanding the struggles and challenges of others we can create dialogue to help connect communities to our shared humanity.

 

The women of Rise Documentary Films are committed to bring amazing films and experts to our Boston area community. These timely, evocative films will be handpicked by the Rise team. Each screening will feature a panel of experts to present and discuss related issues.

A pre screening reception will be provided for all attendees.
