WIAM is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization striving to raise local 
awareness about global issues by building an understanding of the 
connections between global and local realities.  WIAM works in partnership 
with individuals and organizations to host educational and cultural events.  
These events provide public fora for the dialogues on diverse social justice 
issues; one such forum is WIAM's annual One World Film Festival.

The Film Festival is a unique local event, both cultural and educational, 
which promotes awareness of global issues through the powerful medium of 
film.  It provides a venue for the exchange of ideas on important issues and 
brings interested members of the public into contact with local groups 
working for social justice issues. A selection of guest speakers, including 
filmmakers, will be present to discuss the issues, as well as filmmaking, 
and to answer any questions, providing another element in understanding the 
issues raised in the films.  Locally based groups working for social justice 
and international development will also be present.
