Connect Beyond Films


CONNECT BEYOND FESTIVAL Film Programme Information

Connection. A word that by definition means to join together to establish a link, so as to provide access and communication. Connect Beyond Festival has established that link and is using music, film, and storytelling to create connections. More than just an event, Connect Beyond Festival is a movement to develop a network of people inspired by creative mediums and united in the pursuit of equality and social justice. Our goal is to inspire a sense of community and personal engagement.

The Film Programme portion of the Festival showcases Documentary and Narrative Features, and Short Films, with filmmaker Q&A’s and Panels and Impact-driven Screenings. The festival brings film together with musical, theatrical, and literary programming, with discussion panels, interviews, performances, and events which are socially relevant, increase a sense of Connection in our world, celebrate art and beauty, and spark dialogue.
