It’s always good to learn something new, whether it’s the story of a certain bird’s migration or the life story of your favorite rock star. Documentaries are good for this sort of thing. And documentary film festivals are good for providing a plethora of true stories. These stories explore topics you’ve always been curious about, but have never done any digging into. Or, they enlighten you on a topic you’ve been learning about for years. Sometimes you get an assortment of topics at these film festivals, and some festivals feature films focusing on a certain theme, whether it’s civil rights or wildlife conservation. You might laugh, cry or be shocked. No matter what, the films are sure to be the basis of dialogue.
