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 force. We want to see protagonists acting in their own self interest, doing all that they can for themselves without government intrusion, regulation, or support. When people watch out for themselves, they create a better world for everyone. We also believe that the right to fail is essential to success; never forget that Henry Ford designed 18 failures between the Model A and the Model T!
Anthem is part of FreedomFest, “the world’s largest gathering of free minds.” With over 2,500 attendees and 150 speakers on topics including politics, economics, history, science, health, art, and literature, FreedomFest provides a ready audience of eager viewers for Anthem’s filmmakers. Last year’s films were greeted with standing-room-only crowds. This year’s FreedomFest theme "Are We Rome?" is already creating quite a buzz. Be a part of it!
If you, too, believe that the rights of the individual transcend the tyranny of the majority; if you welcome the risk of failure along the road to success; if you acknowledge that your right to act freely is limited by another person's right to be left alone; if you accept the consequences of your actions, and hold others accountable for theirs; and if you believe that you are a little bit different from most of the people you encounter, we believe you belong at Anthem. And if you don't already hold these beliefs, we would like the opportunity to persuade you in that direction!
