Global Roots Film Festival

GLOBAL ROOTS This initiative began in 2013 as a means of bringing great films from the countries of many of the New American communities in Vermont, to foster a greater understanding of our diverse cultures. In 2015 it expanded to encompass other types of films made by the mosaic of cultures and persuasions we live in. In 2016, the focus was on films from the Middle East. The upcoming 2017 Global Roots Festival, which will take place April 7-9 at Contois Auditorium in downtown Burlington, will focus on the cinema of Quebec.

Part of VTIFF’s mission is to work with and for the community, and the Global Roots Series reflects the richness and diversity of our population.
