INAUGURAL ILLUMINATE FILM FESTIVAL BREAKS NEW GROUND
1st Mind-Body-Spirit Fest Offers World Premieres, View & Do Experiences, Healing Village, Workshops
SEDONA, Ariz. (April 1, 2014): The inauguralILLUMINATE Film Festival will blend 22 transformative films, 15 enlightening speakers and workshops, a healing village and an innovative “view and do” experience for moviegoers to more deeply process and integrate what they see on screen while surrounded by Sedona’s stunning backdrop and transformative, healing qualities, May 29-June 1.
The first-of-its-kind mind-body-spirit film festival “is at the forefront of an exploding global conscious movement connecting the film industry to a growing, identifiable, interconnected community of conscious consumers,” said ILLUMINATE Founder and Executive Director Danette Wolpert, who spent five years as Miami International Film Festival Associate Director. “While industry festivals currently exist for most niche genres, one, surprisingly, does not exist for mind-body-spirit. With conscious cinema on the verge of exploding, the time is now and the opportunity is unparalleled.”
