OUR FILM SELECTION PROCESS

Every year, we attend independent film festivals across the country looking for films that explore our common humanity through THE LENS OF HOPE.

The films we choose will take you on a journey of the heart, mind and soul.

In a culture dominated by noise and dialogue that can be polarizing and divisive, Windrider seeks to create space for productive conversation.
