“Our purpose is to showcase cinematic gems that empower those who see them to live kinder, wiser, more enlightened lives.”

The Illuminate Film Festival is not about celebrity spotting, red carpets, or big-money deals. It is unique — a film festival devoted to movies that lift the heart and enlarge the spirit. The third Illuminate Film Festival will take place in Sedona, Arizona from June 1-5, 2016 and tickets are available online. This year’s highlights include “Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru,” “Maya Angelou and Still I Rise,” “Sneak Previews of Teal: The Making of a Spiritual Teacher,” and “Mantra: Sounds Into Silence.” and the world premiere of “Love, Sweat and Tears.” This is a festival for films about inspiration, intimacy, mindfulness, meaning, and creativity.

My dear friend Chaz Ebert will open the Conscious Film Convergence, speaking on the role of transformational entertainment and its potential impact on humanity. Chaz, wife of late esteemed film critic Roger Ebert, is the CEO of several Ebert enterprises, including as well as the Co-Founder of Ebertfest, a film festival now in its 18th year.
