Margaret Mead Film Festival
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The 2019 Margaret Mead Film Festival—the internationally recognized showcase for documentary films—will screen 44 outstanding films representing 34 countries and host special events from Thursday, October 17, through Sunday, October 20, at the American Museum of Natural History. Tickets go on sale Thursday, September 5, and the full film descriptions and trailers are available online at amnh.org/mead. This year's festival selections—including 18 U.S. premieres—embody the theme "Breaking the Narrative," presenting stories that disrupt stereotypical representations of cultures. Honoring the legendary anthropologist Margaret Mead, this year's festival selections connect us to communities across the globe that are breaking norms or just breaking the mold, including women racecar drivers in Saudi Arabia, or Indigenous Australian drag queens, or ultra-orthodox feminists in Israel. This year's films shed light on contemporary culture through the work of filmmakers from countries across the world including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Greenland, Haiti, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and South Korea. With more than 26 filmmakers and protagonists in attendance this year, the festival's post-screening discussions will allow audiences to participate in rich, engaging, and intimate conversations.Venue: American Museum of Natural History
