The Margaret Mead Film Festival is the longest-running premier showcase for international documentaries at the American Museum of Natural History in New York in the United States encompassing a broad spectrum of work, from indigenous community media to experimental nonfiction.
The Mead Festival screens documentaries that increase understanding of the complexity and diversity of the peoples and cultures that populate in the world. It has evolved with the times while maintaining its important history, growing steadily to reflect the ever-evolving incarnations of storytelling, which remain steeped in the documentary tradition.
The screenings at Hanoi Cinematheque, 22A Hai Ba Trung Street, are sponsored by UNICEF. They are open to the public without reservations.
