Anthem Film Festival's Featured Films for 2015

Anthem, The Libertarian Film Festival, is dedicated to finding and presenting the year's best films about personal and civil liberty. We seek films and documentaries about self-reliance, innovation, commerce, individual rights, and the power of persuasion over the force of authority.

Libertarian films often point out the unintended consequences of government intervention, but they are just as likely to present a protagonist's personal struggle for self-expression and self-reliance. They show us how to make the world a better place simply by making our own lives better.

What are filmmakers saying about Anthem?

"Screening our film at Anthem Film Festival was a wonderful experience. It is rare to find a festival with such strong commitment to important messaging and we were honored to have our work included." --Courtney Balaker



"Many of the people who run traditional film festivals seem to be ideologically hostile to the concepts of free markets, capitalism and individual liberty, even though it's those very principles which have given our country the wealth to afford creative pursuits such as filmmaking. Fortunately, those biases against free enterprise do not exist at the Anthem Film Festival - and that's one reason it's become such a successful event in just a few short years. --Bob Bowdon


"Being a libertarian filmmaker comes with its own set of complications, particularly concerning reception. Anthem provides more than just a showcase for niche's an outlet for like-minded individuals to network in an industry that is generally dominated by hostile kingmakers." --Sean Buttimer




Anthem is part of FreedomFest, "the world's largest gathering of free minds." With over 2,500 attendees and 200 speakers on topics including politics, economics, history, science, health, art, and literature, FreedomFest provides a ready audience of eager viewers for Anthem's filmmakers. Our comfortable 250-seat theater was often overflowing at last year's festival, and over 1,0000 people attended our two featured films that were shown in the main ballroom.
