Crossings: Stories of Migration

Exploring stories of modern day migration and reflecting on cinema’s potential to question the ways in which migration is framed, this season aims to open space for dialogue at a time when this is more urgent than ever.

This season is part of the Crossings project. Crossings: Stories of Migration, is an ICA-led UK-wide film and events programme supported by the BFI using National Lottery funding and in partnership with the Goethe-Institut.
