International Film Series

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.
