Winners from the CSWE 2014 Film Festivals.

Between Worlds: Immigrant Women and Domestic Violence (Regina Austin, Shikha Bhattacharjee, Tsedey Bogale, and Tarun Sridharan, Penn Law) has won the CSWE 2014 Virtual Ovation Award from the CSWE 2014 Virtual Film Festival, which featured student-produced films that were rated by the audience. Between Worlds highlights issues that can affect the delivery of domestic violence services to immigrants and refugees; these include cultural and language factors, isolation, and economic and legal concerns. The filmmakers have elected to donate their $500 prize to the nonprofit Nationalities Service Center, which provides social, educational, and legal services to immigrants and refugees in the Philadelphia area.

Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall (dir. Edgar Barens, UIC Jane Addams College of Social Work), an Oscar-nominated film on prison hospice, has won the CSWE 2014 Audience Choice Award from the 2014 Film Festival at CSWE's Annual Program Meeting in Tampa.
