Different From What? Film Festival Official Logo What if we could transform the way we think about differences? What if we challenged who was thought of as 'different'? Or what if we asked an more audacious question—different from what? With inspiring journeys, fresh perspectives, and award-winning films from across the world, this festival will leave you speechless as it moves you from laughter to tears. Participate in thought-provoking panels. Voice your opinions in our video booth. Transcend the limitations of time and space dialoguing in live-stream Twitter posts. Meet our filmmakers and start a conversation that will forever change lives in our communities.
