About The Festival

The Margaret Mead Film Festival, the preeminent showcase for contemporary cultural storytelling, will screen an outstanding lineup of international documentary films October 23-26.

The 2014 Margaret Mead Film Festival will present outstanding films culled from hundreds of submissions. Featuring a broad spectrum of creative storytelling—including indigenous community media, performances, and multi-media events—the Mead Film Festival celebrates the diversity of peoples and cultures from around the world and offers intimate forums for discussion with filmmakers, film subjects, and world-renowned scholars.

Inspired by the immersive, transporting power of film and the Museum’s exhibitions and programs, the Mead Festival will also feature live performances and participatory conversations for a uniquely contemporary experience.

The call for submissions for the 2014 Festival is open!  Click here to visit the 2014 Mead Festival website.
