The International Social Change Film Festival's ("ChangeFest") mission is to curate a life-changing experience filled with film, fashion and fun that allows people of all generations, classes, ethnicities and nationalities to come together and see, hear and feel stories of hope and hardship from across the world.


Two things make ChangeFest different than any other festival or experience:
1 - ChangeFest features true diversity of thought, background and beliefs as attendees come from all across the world and range from millenials to baby-boomers of all classes and ethnicities; and,
2 - ChangeFest isn't just about showing and talking, it's about building as ChangeFest provides meaningful opportunities for attendees, speakers and filmmakers to build upon a fun-loving, welcoming, international community that's committed to addressing the issues highlighted at ChangeFest and beyond.

Filmmakers love ChangeFest because it provides them with some of the international exposure and distribution opportunities needed for their incredible work to be widely recognized, supported and impactful.

Attendees love ChangeFest because of the way in which the inspiring pieces, people and places they encounter create once-in-a-lifetime friends, memories and opportunities.
