The Lindsey Film Festival is driven by the belief that all filmmaking is important and it is our job to support those working independently of the Hollywood machine. This was George Lindsey’s mission in creating the festival 17 years ago. But films are important for different reasons. Narrative films allow us to think about the human condition through the fictions they create. Documentary films allow us to see the human condition through the reality they capture. And activist films ask us to do something about the human condition they are documenting. These films often spark loud debate; “An Inconvenient Truth” comes to mind. And these films sometimes bring us to the understanding that we each are capable of actively engaging in the improvement of humanity. That’s something George would have liked. We hope you will join us on Saturday, March 8, at 10am in the Guillot University Center Loft for “Activist Filmmaking,” moderated by Dr. Greg Pitts.
