Margaret Mead Film Festival


October 22-25, 2015

This annual documentary film festival, founded in honor of anthropologist Margaret Mead, hosts movie screenings, video installations, conversations, and events that increase our understanding of the peoples and cultures that populate our planet.

In an era defined by mobility and transformation, the artists and filmmakers of this year’s festival explore thresholds and boundaries of all kinds—geographic, cultural, personal, and metaphysical—that define contemporary life across Earth. They bring diverse worlds to the screen while highlighting the essential qualities that connect us all.

The 2015 festival runs October 22-25, 2015
