Mindscape Film Festival

The Center for Mind-Body Medicine is excited to announce their collaboration with Conscious Good on the Mindscape Film Festival Tour. Conscious Good is a media brand that embraces forward thinking content revolving around the mind, body and spirit. One of Conscious Good’s premier events is the Mindscape Film Festival Tour that explores the awe inspiring yet mysterious wonders of the mind. The Center for Mind-Body Medicine was selected by Conscious Good to be one of three non-profit collaborators. All three collaborators are striving to advance research and education in our communities about the endless ways the mind can lead us to healthier, happier lives. As a result, CMBM and the two other collaborators will receive 10% of the ticket sales from the national Mindscape Film Festival Tour screenings.

The Mindscape Film Festival consists of two phases. The first phase occurred in July and served as the online portion in which twelve curated short films were available for online streaming on the Conscious Good website. Viewers were then able to vote for their favorite films to be considered for phase two of the film festival. The Mindscape Film Festival is currently undergoing phase two, in which the top voted films are screened in theaters across the United States. Beginning in Boulder, Colorado, the films will make their way to New York City, where CMBM is co-hosting a screening.

The thought-provoking films Conscious Good curated for the Mindscape Film Festival widely vary in substance and format, with something for everyone. One film is Synesthesia, a look at what synesthesia is and people who have it.

Another film, titled Dance of the Neurons, features a dance troupe performance.

Other films are:

  • You’re It
  • Mindfulness
  • The Remedy
  • In the Blink of an Eye
  • Memoire
  • Simon Says

You can view some of the finalist films that will not be on the tour on the Mindscape Film Festival website, including the winner of the Mindscape Film Festival Audience Award was Laura Snow’s Leave-Taking. The film was made in the memory of Snow’s father and the journey he endured from war. Masterfully, Snow directs a film that serves not just as a more nuanced representation of veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) but also as an avenue to explore how PTSD affects the lives of those closest to them, their spouses and children.
