Welcome to Shelbyville Coming to PWC

The 2010 documentary "Welcome to Shelbyville" will be presented in an advance screening, free and open to the public, on Sunday, March 6 at 2:30 pm in the Verizon Auditorium of George Mason University’s Prince William Campus, 10900 University Boulevard, Manassas.

Permission to show the film is courtesy of the BeCause Foundation and presented by The Immigration & Human Rights Cinema, a joint project of George Mason University’s Prince William Campus University Life and Unity in the Community.

Inspired by the residents of Shelbyville, Tennessee, who pushed past their fears and faced the rapid demographic change in their town, "Welcome to Shelbyville" documents real life events and understandings that helped this community of whites, African Americans, Latinos and Somalis become more welcoming to newcomers – and each other – in a single year.

A facilitated discussion and audience dialogue follows the film.

Kim A. Snyder directed and produced the film with executive production by BeCause Foundation in association with Active Voice. "Welcome to Shelbyville" is a recipient of a 2010 Gucci-Tribeca Documentary Fund grant, an official selection of the US State Department’s 2010 American Documentary Showcase, and will be broadcast nationally on PBS’s Independent Lens in May 2011.

Parking is available in the Occoquan Lot across George Mason Circle from the Verizon Auditorium.
