Through an annual film festival BHRFF supports independent filmmakers, fosters dialogue and promotes action. For fourteen years, volunteer committee members have selected scores of insightful and moving films they hope will encourage the community to explore and engage with critical issues. Films are followed by facilitated discussion, some led by the filmmakers themselves. See the Film History tab above for action you can take on film issues. Use this tab to find local libraries for copies of most recent films.
