As the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street draws near, “Occupy the Film Festival” is celebrating by bringing together the most compelling and innovative films of the movement, from its roots in the Spanish Indignados, the Arab Spring and American factory floor occupations, to the mini-societies that blossomed in public squares, to the post-encampment community organizing around home foreclosures, corporate regulation, labor and immigrant struggles, and student debt. This should be an incredible couple of days of documentaries and discussion, and will include exhibits of photography of the Occupy of the movement by award-winning artists, a gallery of those gorgeous OccuPrint posters we’ve all come to love, occupied newspapers from around the country, as well as informational tabling. And as a special bonus, there will even be an appearance by the Illuminator! Make sure to get your tickets soon, before they sell out.
