Welcome to our 25th year!

Great films have the power to bring us together, teach us, give us hope, and even move us to action.

Through stories of history, romance, comedy, adventure and more, our films provide insights into aspects of the human experience – resilience, love, determination and faith – that can inform and inspire our shared aspirations of equality, tolerance and human dignity.

From our early days showing a few thought-provoking films in a community center auditorium, this annual festival now features more than 45 carefully curated films from around the world. Film lovers of every age, ethnicity, faith and lifestyle gather to share, learn, laugh, cry and expand their worldview.

Join us in this celebration and experience film’s power to foster greater compassion, build bridges and feed the hopeful spirit in us all.

See you at the movies!
