The 2014 Margaret Mead Film Festival is coming to the American Museum of Natural History on October 23-26, and it’s going to be a pretty amazing showcase of contemporary cultural media. The lineup is jam-packed with 46 films from over 30 countries, plus special events like post-screening discussions with filmmakers, daily happy hours, and two new interactive video installations in the Grand Gallery of the Museum.
The festival kicks off on Thursday, October 23, with the U.S. premiere of The Last Patrol, an HBO Documentary Film that explores the return home from war and the transition from combat to civilian life. Closing night (Sunday) will get spooky with The Darkside, a documentary hybrid that sets indigenous ghost stories from across Australia to film. And, of course, there’s plenty to see in between!
Opening and closing night tickets are $15 a pop ($13 for members, students, and seniors), and all other screenings are $12 ($10 for members/students/seniors). Want to take it all in? Check out the Film Lover, One Day, or Student Pass options for great all-access deals.
