Bullfrog Communities banner

Bullfrog Communities, a project of Bullfrog Films, is pleased to announce two incredibly timely and major award-winning new releases for community and campus-wide screenings: CAPTURING THE FLAG and THIS IS HOME.

With the US midterm elections on the horizon, CAPTURING THE FLAG is essential viewing. According to a NPR report, turnout for the election could hit a 50-year high. Disenfranchisement is a major threat.  CAPTURING THE FLAG tells the current voter-suppression story in vivid detail.

Winner of this year's Sundance Film Festival Audience Award: World Cinema Documentary and National Media Market 2018 Best in Show Finalist, THIS IS HOME is a stirring account of the global refugee crisis through the eyes of Syrian refugee families attempting to resettle in Baltimore.
