About Us

The Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival is the longest-running showcase for international documentaries in the United States, encompassing a broad spectrum of work, from indigenous community media to experimental nonfiction. The festival is distinguished by its outstanding selection of titles, which tackle diverse and challenging subjects, representing a range of issues and perspectives, and by the forums for discussion with filmmakers and speakers.

The Public Programs division of the museum organizes lectures, workshops, fieldtrips, and film screenings related to the museum’s temporary and permanent exhibits. Interns will have the opportunity to work on projects related to both the Mead Festival and other public programs.
