Other scheduled events include a shorts program and screenings of Paola Marino's "Teal: The Making of a Spiritual Teacher" with renowned healer Teal Swan in attendance. Simon Kilmurry, executive director of the International Documentary Association, will moderate a discussion on film finance, while transgender father Trisha Shattuck will participate in a Q&A following his daughter Sharon's documentary, "From This Day Forward."
Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith will be presented with the inaugural Conscious Visionary Award at a screening of Scott Jacobs' "Love, Sweat and Tears."
