At the Fist Up Film Festival...
We believe watching a good film can change your life…
We believe some films are made to be discussed…

The Fist Up Film Festival presents films that are intended to create impact, inspire discussion and foster understanding. By placing emphasis on the connected experiences between global and local communities, The Fist Up Film Festival creates visual parallels between people’s lived experiences and stories from around the world.

Goals:

1. Engagement: Encourage interaction with the film beyond just watching it. Point attendees to community organizations that champion the issues brought up in the film.
2. Influence: Make an issue visible, discuss injustices, and create solutions.
3. Network building: Foster new coalitions, advocates, and institutions via shared tools and platforms.
