Celebrate Mandela Day with the launch weekend of the Freedom Series (July 15-18), a series of community-hosted films and conversations on topics of freedom. Each host community is presenting a series of conversation-provoking films, followed by an open dialogue. By mixing cultural perspectives with the short films preceding each feature, each screening and discussion will cultivate cross-cultural compassion and demonstrate the provocative power of independent cinema.



Admission to each program is free, with a $5 minimum donation suggested to benefit the hosting organization.
