We couldn’t be happier with this year’s selection of thought-provoking documentaries and engaging narrative films. See the full list here.

Our schedule begins with a Festival of Shorts on Wednesday afternoon and ends with a Gala Awards banquet Saturday night, which includes a gourmet meal, entertainment by world-famous impressionist Rich Little, and dancing to the Pink Flamingos interactive band. In between you will be treated to 20 top-notch documentaries and features that promote libertarian values and following one’s dreams.

Shorts will be screened on the hour and half hour during the pre-conference festival Wednesday from 1-5 pm and again during coffee breaks throughout the conference. Grab a cup of joe and bring it into the theater. You’ll still have time to check out the exhibit hall before the next session begins. Feature documentaries will be screened during breakout sessions, with panel discussions following the screenings.

Don’t miss our opening night keynote film, Raiders! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made, in the Wilshire Ballroom Wednesday night after the gala cocktail reception. Maybe you’ve heard of the underground cult classic—Raiders of the Lost Ark remade shot-for-shot in the 1980s that started the “fan film” craze. Last summer the boys—now in their 40s—went back to finish the last scene, and our filmmakers were there to document the whole story. Raiders! documents the project from start to finish in a film that is funny, dramatic, inspiring, and one of the best docs we’ve seen this year. It includes clips and interviews the boys made during their summers as well as interviews with John Rhys- Davies (the original Sallah) and a climactic scene you won’t want to miss.
