I, IMMIGRANT: FIRST RESPONDERS IN THE CORONA WAR

We need your help! Did You Know? More than 1 in 6 US healthcare workers are immigrants, including 1 in 3 in California and New York, the states hardest hit by the Coronavirus.

Cinema Without Borders Foundation (CWB) wants to thank and acknowledge US immigrants who are putting their lives on the line to save the nation from this lethal pandemic. We are committed to spotlighting the positive impact of immigrant healthcare workers in fighting against Coronavirus.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
To do that, we have launched an online film festival under the banner of I, Immigrant. We are asking immigrant doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and other healthcare workers to capture their activities on cell phone or other devices as they care for patients. Entries may be between 1-40-minutes long. All films will be submitted through FilmFreeway and posted on I, Immigrant and the social media platforms of festival partners for public viewing.

A five-member jury will review the entries and award cash prizes to the top three contenders. I, Immigrant‘s first edition award ceremony will be held at Lumiere Music Hall movie theater in Beverly Hills , California at 11AM on Sunday December 20th, 2020.

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
You can help shine the spotlight on immigrant first responders by making a tax-deductible gift to I, IMMIGRANT: FIRST RESPONDERS IN THE CORONA WAR here. Our goal is to raise $3,000 to cover the cash awards for the winning filmmakers and video-posting expenses of this people-friendly initiative.
