Festival Schedule:
Saturday, February 18th at 4:00pm
Program 1: "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 prizefighter, 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.

Saturday, February 18th at 7:30pm
Program 2: "Mobilize"
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.

Program 3: "We All We Got"
We as people live next to each other and on top of 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.
Films: Pink Boy - A New Home - Good White People - We All We Got - Zero M2

Sunday, February 19th at 7:30pm

Each program also features a film from the Another Kind of Girl Collective, 7 short documentaries created by teenage girls living in Syrian refugee camps in Jordan.
