Crossing Borders Education uses the power of film to inspire people to develop core social skills through constructive dialogue on social, cross-cultural and diversity issues. It is our experience that self-awareness, empathy and reflection skills can be drastically strengthened in the process.
Our Intercultural Film Trilogy has been screened at 15 international film festivals and 22 international conferences and have reached over 100,000 students and educators.
Good films explain the world to us. Great films show us how to make it better. Crossing Borders is a wonderful film that deepens intercultural empathy.Mark Bauman, EVP National Geographic TV
Approached thoughtfully, The Dialogue can start powerful conversations and set the stage for bridge-building.Blaire Modic, Director of Study Abroad, Central College, Iowa
American Textures is a powerful and compelling film that reveals the importance of more honest discourse about race in America.Bryan Stevenson, Founder, Equal Justice Institute
The dialogue and honesty in American Textures compels viewers to be transparent, self-reflective and critically think about racial issues agitating Americans. The communications that happened as a result were transformative for UNG campuses and the accompanying diversity resources permit a more robust dialogue on race in the future.Sheila Caldwell, Chief Diversity Officer, University of North Georgia
Crossing Borders Education has proved to be a critical preparation tool for my study abroad students. The authentic voices in the film models what students can practice abroad.Dr. Naomi Ludeman Smith, Prof. of Intercultural Studies, Bethel University
