Anthem is the only film festival in the country devoted to promoting libertarian ideals. In five short years we have grown from a small festival with a few dozen attendees to a well respected festival with hundreds of attendees. In fact, two of last year’s featured films screened in front of an audience of over 1,000 people!

John Stossel introduces the screening of “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?"

Is Anthem the right fit for you? It is if you are creating films and documentaries that celebrate self-reliance, innovation, commerce, individual rights, and the power of persuasion over force. We are looking for the year's best films about personal and civil liberty. Libertarian films often criticize the unintended consequences of government intervention, but government intrusion is not our only theme. We are just as likely to select films that highlight a character’s personal struggle for self-expression or ability to knock down obstacles.

Libertarian heroes are non-conformists. They follow their own paths. When something goes wrong, they fix it themselves. When something goes right, they give credit where it is due. Libertarian films show us how to make the world a better place, simply by making our own lives better.

Filmmakers often screen to standing-room-only audiences at Anthem, because 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, education and literature, FreedomFest provides a ready audience of eager viewers for Anthem’s filmmakers.

FreedomFest producer Mark Skousen is already amassing an impressive lineup of intellectual “Dream Teams” to explore this year’s theme, "Can We Restore the American Dream?" What does “the American Dream” mean to you? Is it lost? Can it be found? Should it be replaced? And have you made a film about it? FreedomFest Theme Video

Our comfortable 250-seat theater was often overflowing at last year's festival. Our media coverage is growing too. If you care about liberty, this is the festival for you.
