Global Roots Film Festival: The Middle East
February 11, 2016, 12:00 AM
149 Church Street
The 2016 Global Roots Film Festival highlights 8 films from the Middle East
This year’s festival was made possible with a grant from the Sisters of Mercy Peace Initiative and the co-sponsorship of the Burlington-Bethlehem-Arad Sister City Program, as a celebration of their 25th anniversary. Thank you also to Hilton Garden Inn for assisting in the accommodation of the guest filmmakers and to Slow Food Vermont for providing Middle East food tastings. Thank you to UVM Hillel for sponsoring the screening of In Search of Israeli Cuisine.
We’re thrilled to announce that two of the filmmakers, Leila Sansour and Roger Sherman, will be attending the festival to introduce their films and for post-screenings Q&As. Receptions and cash bars before or after each screening are a wonderful opportunity to welcome them and engage in conversation. All screenings will include introductions and Q&As.
