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 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 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 will also feature live performances and participatory conversations for a uniquely contemporary experience.
