FAQ: What is the Zeitgeist Media Festival?
Recognizing the power of art and media to help change the world, “The Zeitgeist Media Festival” is an annual world-wide arts festival that occurs late each summer.
The idea is to engage the artistic community and their power to changes values. It proposes that needed changes in the structural/economic workings of society can only manifest in tandem with a personal/social transformation of values in each of us. While intellectual knowledge serves its role of showing the path, many in the world follow their feelings- not the knowledge. The Zeitgeist Media Festival works to bridge those levels, while also illuminating a focus where changing and improving the world is no longer considered a fringe, suspect or ever dangerous pursuit – but rather the highest and most honorable level of personal/social integrity we have.
Participating in The Zeitgeist Media Festival does not mean each event must meet some strict requirement of focus or even be dedicated to the tenets of The Movement. However, participation does require that each act understand and agree with a general train of thought with respect to human and social sustainability and the self-evident factors that comprise a Global View of Earth as a single system and how that relates to our Human Family.
The Zeitgeist Media Festival also globally works with local Food Drives to help the many homeless and suffering directly.
