ACTIVE CINEMA

A forum for films that inspire people to take action to create positive change, MVFF’s Active Cinema films are united in their commitment to explore the world and its issues (both local and global), engage audiences, and transform ideas into action. Join us for screenings throughout the Festival, support the grassroots activism of the filmmakers, and engage with the admirable work of special guests, co-presenters, and partners.
