Conscious Film Convergence

What is Conscious Film Convergence?

If you are involved in the conscious film industry as a writer, director, producer or in any area from production to distribution, the Conscious Film Convergence (CFC) is for you. Held annually at the Illuminate Film Festival in Sedona (May 31 - June 4, 2017) this film industry gathering is dedicated to evolving the conscious cinema movement into a global phenomenon.

The Convergence brings industry leaders from around the world to present workshops and presentations in areas of importance to aspiring and established filmmakers. You'll meet funders, distributors, directors, writers and other movers and shakers in the industry in an up close and personal venue. This is the world's premier event dedicated to elevating the world's collective mind, body, spirit and environmental consciousness through cinema. The event is comprised of master classes, panel discussions, a mentorship program, nightly parties where you can mingle with presenters, and the most compelling conscious cinema of the year as curated by the ILLUMINATE Film Festival.

SAVE THE DATES: Convergence 2017 takes place Friday June 2nd through Sunday June 4th.

The Conscious Cinema Movement Has Reached a Tipping Point

According to a study by Sparks & Honey in partnership with Gaiam TV, more than 100 million people in the United States are hungry for information on how to grow spiritually and live in harmony with other people, other cultures and the earth.

Conscious concepts, once trivialized, are becoming mainstream thanks to moguls like Oprah, Russell Brand, Deepak Chopra, Russell Simmons and others. Production values have dramatically improved as veteran filmmakers enter the conscious media space and novice filmmakers continue to hone their craft. These developments, as well as technological advancements in everything from camera gear to social media tools, have democratized our ability to produce, market and distribute conscious content.

Who is going to be there?

Hosting filmmakers, producers, distributors, marketers, publicists, financiers and brands invested in the creation of conscious content, Conscious Film Convergence is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to exchange and network with like-minded professionals.
