A Message From Katie and Gay Hendricks

We are delighted to sponsor this festival through our non-profit Foundation For Conscious Living. We are especially pleased that Stephen Simon and Anna Darrah have joined us as co-directors of the festival. Stephen and Anna have achieved worldwide recognition for their work with The Spiritual Cinema Circle, which has brought attention to the films of more than 600 independent filmmakers since its debut in 2004. With their leadership, we hope to inspire the filmmaker community to explore the always-fascinating world of relationships.
