Midnight Memphis

Moving Worlds is a programme of films available to watch at home during Refugee Week, a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees (15-21 June 2020). Moving Worlds is produced by Counterpoints Arts, which coordinates Refugee Week nationally.

In light of physical distancing restrictions, this year’s programme is working digitally in order to facilitate home screenings and online post-screening conversations. Now more than ever, we realise the need to stay socially and personally connected and to share compelling storytelling journeys.

Responding to this year’s Refugee Week theme ‘Imagine’, the programme itself is re-imagined as a weekly film festival with a curated programme of features and shorts exploring personal experiences of forced displacement, stories of visualising one’s future and past, as well as narratives of resilience, change and hope. In addition to the selected films generously offered by our network of filmmakers, we have also identified award-nominated films that can be accessed online via external websites.
