ACTIVE CINEMA: QUESTION | ENGAGE | TRANSFORM

MVFF’s Active Cinema films are united in their commitment to explore the world and its issues, engage audiences, and transform society. Join us for screenings throughout the Festival, support the grassroots activism of filmmakers, and engage with admirable work by special guests, co-presenters, and partners.

ACTIVE CINEMA HIKE

NETWORKING IN NATURE

Due to uncertainty about air quality conditions and the potentially strenuous activity involved, we are cancelling the Active Cinema Hike

Get some fresh air and fresh ideas with filmmakers, friends, and cinephiles during this hour-long hike to the ocean through beautiful terrain. Join Festival staff and guests and exchange ideas and wisdom on filmmaking, filmmaker resources, activism, and strategies for action. Bring water and sunblock, and wear good hiking shoes.  All are welcome! Meet at the Tennessee Valley trailhead parking lot.
