Remembering the First Wave: A Pandemic Discussion and Film Screening

Join the Queens Memory Project and the Queens World Film Festival to commemorate and reflect on the 4th anniversary of the city-wide shutdown of New York City during the first wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020. We will hold space for sharing memories of loss and gratitude from that time and then screen short film selections honoring the themes of hope, community and resilience emerging from the pandemic.

Featuring videos from the Queens World Film Festival Listening Tour and the Queens Memory COVID-19 Project. Screening is followed by a moderated Q&A with community members.

Snacks will be provided!
