Funded by the John and Mary Murphy Foundation, the One Winchester, Many Traditions international film series is a project to welcome the town’s residents from other countries and to celebrate the varied cultural heritages of all of Winchester’s residents. In addition to maintaining a subscription to World Journal, the largest Chinese-language newspaper in the United States, we host an annual film series from November through April.
Films are shown in the Winchester Public Library’s Meeting Room. All film screenings are free.
