UnLonely Film Festival
ABOUT THE UNLONELY FILM FESTIVAL
Welcome to the UnLonely Film Festival! Our goal with this film festival is to provide a sense of “connectedness” between you, the filmmaker, and others viewing the films.
This is a core principle of our work at The UnLonely Project, which is a signature initiative by the Foundation for Art & Healing. The mission of the Foundation for Art & Healing is to promote creative arts expression as a means to improve health and well-being for individuals and communities.
Thanks for visiting – we hope whatever you discover you will share with a friend. After all, connecting with others through creative expression is what our UnLonely community is all about.
