More than 25 feature-length and short films from local and international filmmakers will be showcased during the third annual Inspire Film Festival, Feb. 14-18.
Spearheaded by The Woodlands resident Jane Minarovic, the inaugural Inspire Film Festival was held in February 2016 focusing on movies that celebrate the triumph of the human spirit.
“[The new theme] ‘Game Changers’ literally just popped into my head as I was planning last year’s program,” Minarovic said.
This year the five-day festival will kick off in The Woodlands Waterway with a community screening of short films followed by a VIP party featuring a multimedia fashion show. In addition to film screenings, the festival will also include accompanying live entertainment and panel discussions.
“The biggest difference this year is the addition of the 200-seat theater and the huge hospitality tent in front of the [Cynthia Woods Mitchell] Pavilion gates that will serve as a place for people to grab a bite from the food trucks outside, talk about the films and catch a panel discussion,” Minarovic said.
The following festival schedule is accurate as of Feb. 5. To stay up to date on possible schedule changes, festival organizers encourage attendees to download the Inspire Film Festival app available for free in the App Store and Google Play by searching “Inspire.”
