Event

Current Movements Film Festival
Join us for a week of documentary films, inspiring panel discussions, healing arts workshops, and a Saturday party!

The Current Movements Film Festival was created to connect a wider audience to documentary films and to what is happening in social movements today.

This 6-day event will not only highlight stories of social change, but will also bring together artists, activists, filmmakers, and collectives who are building a future we want to live in.
Each day, we will screen documentaries that will be the starting point to talk about the issues facing real people and communities. We will hear the voices of global activists who are doing the work day-in and day-out to make a difference. We want this form of multi-layered storytelling to engage attendants into getting involved in movements by understanding the issues, see they have a role to play, and to learn how they can meaningfully take part. In the process, we hope to bring folks in movements together to build relationships and find new ways to build power.
