Cinema has the potential to enlighten, inspire, and ignite positive change. Films such as Lion, Moonlight, Hidden Figures, Wings of Life, Wasted, Get Out, The Cove, and Boyhood have the potential to move people to instigate change in own lives as well as the world around us. In its 6th year, The Esalen Inspirational Film Festival (EIFF) will once again feature a stellar lineup of powerful films, panel discussions, and interactive experiences with award-winning filmmakers, thought leaders, producers, and studio executives.
