SAVE THE DATE: The 2023 World House Film Festival, January 13 - January 16
In celebration of the 2023 Martin Luther King, Jr., Holiday, we are excited to host our annual four-day virtual film festival. This year the festival will feature over 40 documentaries, interviews, and panel discussions around the theme: "The Crisis of Democracy in the World House."
Our new short documentary, "When I Get Grown—Reflections of a Freedom Rider," has won 9 awards! Based on interviews conducted by Clayborne Carson, "When I Get Grown" tells the story of Bernard Lafayette and how the trauma he experienced as a seven-year-old set him on a course to becoming a civil rights legend and changing the course of a nation.
