BISS SPONSORED EVENTS
• Running from Nov 19 through Dec 20th: The Global Film Initiative presents The Global Lens film series which can be seen in more than 35 locations across the United States and Canada and is impacting lives around the world.

"The Global Lens film series opens us to a larger world; a world where other realities, forces at large, values and survival instincts prevail. In this world, people triumph on a daily basis against the odds or deal with the grim truths of their world," Siegel said about the series. "Thanks to Global Lens, the world is smaller and our understanding of it is much larger."
