Social Impact Film Series - Greenwich International Film Festival

GIFF’s 2023 Virtual Social Impact Film Series features three inspiring films, including documentary and narrative features, that will be available to view from the comfort of your home from January 20th to 22nd, 2023.

BLURRING THE COLOR LINE – BLURRING THE COLOR LINE follows director Crystal Kwok as she unpacks the history behind her grandmother’s family, who were neighborhood grocery store owners in the Black community of Augusta, Georgia during the Jim Crow era. This documentary serves to disrupt racial narratives and bridge divides.

CINEMA SABAYA – Nine women, Arab and Jewish, take part in a video workshop hosted by Rona, a young film director, who teaches them how to document their lives. With each raw homemade footage shot by the women and shared with the others, the group dynamic forces them to challenge their views and beliefs as they get to know each other and themselves better.

LITTLE TOWN – Jason, a failed stand-up comedian in his 40s, takes his son on the road to LITTLE TOWN to find his dead mom. They drive with LAUREN, a free-spirited soul who is trying to help them get to their destination and follow their dreams.
