Appreciating Diversity Film Series

The Appreciating Diversity Film Series is a collaborative program of the Piedmont Appreciating Diversity Committee, DiversityWorks, and the League of Women Voters of Piedmont. The ADFS endeavors to show six documentary films a year, each followed by some form of community dialogue.

ADFS films are always free.

The mission of the Appreciating Diversity Film Series is to bring powerful documentaries that examine issues of diversity to community audiences. We aim to provide a venue that stimulates community dialogue about institutionalized power imbalances, broadens awareness, challenges assumptions, and encourages our audience to work toward a more just world.
