We are intentional in our bringing together a group of films from diverse cultures as a means of fostering a better understanding and appreciation for one another's culture and artistry.
Each year we attempt to bring in a filmmaker or actor of renown to speak to our gathering. in 2011 Danny Glover came and spoke about the making of his film "Freedom Song" which chronicled the the "Freedom Riders" experience in Mississippi 50 years ago. Also Tom Lester, "Eb" from "Green Acres" TV fame and a native Mississippian came and spoke about his Hollywood experience.
