The Asylum Seekers Centre is coming together to mark Refugee Week in a very different way this year, with an at-home movie night.

The event will raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society. It will also raise funds for the practical services that the Asylum Seekers Centre provides to people seeking asylum in New South Wales – including a foodbank, emergency accommodation and financial assistance, legal services, casework, a primary health clinic and employment services.

On 20 June, you will receive an email with video content to watch before your film. If you’re watching with adults, you’ll receive an exclusive interview with Hearts and Bones director Ben Lawrence and actor Andrew Luri and Asylum Seekers Centre CEO Frances Rush. If you’re watching with kids, you’ll receive a video of storytelling session with a multilingual storyteller. After viewing the preview video, watch a film of your choice.

Will you come?
