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 13-16.

Each year, the festival presents outstanding films featuring a broad spectrum of creative storytelling—including indigenous community media, performances, and multi-media events— as the Mead 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 collections, the Mead features live performances and participatory conversations for a uniquely contemporary experience.
