FAQs

The LMU campus is large, how can I find the festival?

We should have maps available at the campus entrance, but the event will be centered at the Life Sciences Building. Screenings will also be held in the Seaver Building, Rooms 100 and 200 and the Mayer Theatre.

What are parking options at the event?

Parking will be in the Life Sciences Building parking structure. Parking is FREE both days

Will I be able to see more than one movie?

Some films are scheduled for everyone to be able to see. Others may be scheduled at the same time; during those times, you will need to choose which film you want to see. At most, you will be able to see three films on Saturday and three on Sunday, with the option to visit our Living Library during one film on Sunday.

What is Solitary Confinement - A Virtual Exhibit?

Using modern technology, festival attendees will be able to step into an incarcerated person's experience of solitary confinement.

What is a Living Library?

A Living Library is based on the premise that featured individuals are living "books" who volunteer to talk about their life stories. Most human books (as in the case of the women featured in Testif-i) have experienced prejudice and/or discrimination because of their identity or part of their identity. The hope is that their stories can affect another person's understanding of a certain culture, subculture, or identity. Our Living Libraray will be held in a brave space where people can have open and honest conversations to learn from each other.

What's the refund policy?
