The world currently counts more displaced people than at any time since 1945, while Europe is facing the most significant arrival of migrants in its postwar period. In that context, filmmakers have created thought-provoking works, putting that situation into perspective.

The film series "Filming at the Borders: Migrating to Europe Today" intends to open up the debate on ongoing migration issues, such as education, integration and gender-related challenges. In order to foster discussion, each screening is followed by a Q&A. Afer two first screenings at Toronto Reference Library in February, the film series comes back in April at Innis Town Hall Theatre, at the University of Toronto.
