Women Leading the Way in Conscious Cinema

Sedona, Arizona – February 2, 2016 – Danette Wolpert, founder of the ILLUMINATE Film Festival will present "Women Leading the Way in Conscious Filmmaking" at the monthly Sedona Women's gathering on February 10 at the Sedona Creative Life Center.

Humanity craves inspiring stories that support the journey toward happiness, freedom, abundance and peace.

A new movement in conscious filmmaking aims to make these stories plentiful and accessible, empowering those who see them to live kinder, wiser, more enlightened lives.

Because the dominant themes in conscious cinema are compassion, self-care, connected community and the inward journey, women filmmakers are naturally leading the way.

For decades, conscious cinema went largely ignored by the independent film industry and audiences at large. But filmmakers, now on the frontier of a global conscious movement, are speaking with their cameras.

Join Danette Wolpert, as she takes listeners behind the scenes of the film business to explain what it takes to usher a film from script to screen and how women are pioneering this new movement.

Watch a selection of short films that will inspire people to seek greater levels of awareness and discover the moving image as a compelling tool for enrichment, personal growth and wellness.

Whether a movie buff, a self-help junkie, or with a burning desire to make a film, conscious cinema is bound to enlighten and transform. Learn how to support these types of films and provide these brilliant visionary filmmakers of our time a vehicle to enlighten our world.

ILLUMINATE is the world's premier film festival for conscious cinema. Dedicated to spreading enlightened ideas and pushing humanity forward, ILLUMINATE is 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 showcases the best of transformational media to uplift, inspire and transform.

The 2016 ILLUMINATE Film Festival is scheduled for June 1-5, 2016 at the Sedona Performing Arts Center and Mary D. Fisher Theater.
