The Illuminate Film Festival opens today in Sedona, Arizona. Its mission is to be the premier film festival for “conscious cinema.”
Dedicated to spreading enlightened ideas and pushing humanity forward, Illuminate is poised to become a landmark destination event and centerpiece for conscious content. Founded on the premise that the language of film is universal and a dynamic force in carrying messages to the masses, the Festival will showcase the best of transformational media to uplift, inspire and transform.
The film lineup is impressive, including Salma Hayek-Pinault’s stunning visual adaptation of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, the Emma Thompson-produced “Sold,” the story of a young Nepali girl’s struggle after being sold into prostitution and how her faith, Bhakti practice and memories of her mother give her the courage to fight against all odd, with stars Gillian Anderson and David Arquette, and “Dying to Know,” a documentary about Timothy Leary and Ram Dass.
