We will announce all of our selected films in the coming days. In the meantime, we are thrilled to share our five film program themes for 2016.
2016 Program Themes
Young and old com together in this program that juxtaposes the wise nature of the elderly with the spirited vulnerability of youth. And oftentimes, vice versa.
Not your children’s fairy tales. These films are twists on old parables, exploring themes for a mature audience that include grief, the loss of innocence, and the blurred lines of dreams giving way to unfettered fantasy.
Immigration and climate change are two of the biggest issues facing the world today. This collection of inspiring films delve deep into some of our current problems and show that human compassion, curiosity, and a little mobilized action can go a long way to making the world a better place.
THE WORK WE DO
Does our work define who we are? And how does that identity affect our community and the people around us? In this program, we learn lessons from a prize fighter, a half blind photographer, an aging steam plant worker, a determined composer, a teenage refugee, and a depressed psychiatrist about the work we do and how personal legacy can inspire more than just individual success.
WE ALL WE GOT
We as a people live on top of each other and next to each other and yet so often we are defined by our differences and desires to remain divided. “We All We Got” explores this division, highlighting the importance of community and the infinite strength we can only build together.
