#TWN50Years Celebration & Announcement of our Educational Media Streaming Platform!

Since December 1967, Third World Newsreel has been promoting progressive media and we continue to support the ongoing efforts of communities of color to work for peace, social justice and equality.

Today we are proud to launch a new educational streaming storefront, providing films by and about people of color and films by the Newsreel collective. For the first time, we have our own streaming platform for educational users and community groups, Visit our new platform now!

TWN's 50th anniversary celebration started in May 2017 as we collaborated with the Radical Film Network and the Workers Unite! Film Festival (May 5-25) to present the Global Gathering of Progressive Filmmakers (May 3-6) at the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies. In 2018 we continue the celebration with screenings at Hunter College, the New York Public Library, Anthology Film Archives, Metrograph, and more.
