The Festival will screen full length, mid, and short films (25 minutes or less) and videos themed around social justice issues with a focus on the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. Films cover a broad range of issues including; the environment, poverty, LGBTQ issues, racial and gender equality, prison/police reform, food justice, peace and human rights issues.  Films demonstrate the power and value of filmmaking as a vehicle for exploration of social justice issues and aim to motivate viewers to seek solutions and promote change.
