Windrider Virtual Film Forum July 8, 9, 10, 15 & 16

The 2021 Windrider Bay Area Virtual Film Forum screened from July 8–10 & 15–16. Five days of Windrider programs looking at the world through THE LENS OF HOPE. Announcements on our 2022 season will be available at a later date.

We’re continuing our goal of bringing you thoughtful, inspiring films that motivate you to respond actively and constructively. Our “Lens of Hope” filter invites you to engage and listen as a filmmaker tells you a story, showing constructive responses to important issues. Through these films and the filmmaker conversations, we believe we can broaden understanding of ourselves and others, break down barriers of indifference, and encourage people to make a difference in our world.

How Does Windrider Select Films?

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 chose 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.
