The Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival is a two-day free public event, showcasing stories of multiracial families, individuals and relationships to encourage a dynamic conversation about the connectedness of all races and cultures. Through film screenings, readings, workshops and performance, the Festival provides a safe, positive forum for honest discussions about race & culture; encourages emerging storytellers’ careers; and promotes the Mixed experience as a valuable prism with which to view issues of social justice and change.
The Festival, a fiscally sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts, is an inclusive event which brings together film and book lovers, innovative artists, and families interested in the Mixed racial and cultural experience. The Festival also hosts the largest West Coast Loving Day celebration with music, food and fun.
