The Global Film Initiative is now accepting applications from public libraries to join the Global Public library program.
Global Public is a unique opportunity for public libraries to revolutionize arts and education in their communities through exhibition of the award-winning narrative world cinema series, Global Lens. Libraries work with the Initiative and local partners on vibrant exhibitions of the series and after presentation, libraries are invited to keep films for their permanent lending collection.
The Global Lens film series was established to showcase unique and compelling stories of the world through film. From Rwanda to Mexico, India, Bosnia and beyond, the series features award-winning films by innovative filmmakers from around the globe, and is seen in locations such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian Institution, to cinematheques, festivals, schools, universities and of course, public libraries.
If your library is in the U.S. or U.S territories and would like to join Global Public, visit our website to learn how you can submit a proposal.
