The Saturday Symposium is an opportunity to connect with filmmakers, artists, and students from across the country. In 2019, the keynote speaker was Martina Castro, a bilingual radio producer, sound designer and podcaster. She led students through an exploration of the role and implications of translation, non-English multimedia, and innovative forms of making. Following the keynote, students broke out into small group sessions with T/F filmmakers for conversation and community-building.

Stay tuned for the 2020 Saturday Symposium schedule in early December.


This year, we’re again excited to offer a special window of time, exclusively for educational tickets, for students or educators to reserve a set of of group tickets. This is especially great for teachers who would like to attend a particular film with a class or clubs and organizations who want to see a film as a group. Interested groups can access our educational ticket request form here. 


T/F is happy to come to you or join the class via video chat! If you want someone to come in and talk to your class or club about the Fest, how to get tickets, or this year’s films, we’ve got a whole team of volunteers ready to visit!


Of course, you can volunteer! There are plenty of teams that need enthusiastic, committed, responsible volunteers. See how to volunteer or email [email protected] to learn more.
