Are You Ready to Shine?


Be transformed and uplifted through films, luminary workshops and more, featuring some of the world’s foremost spiritual leaders and teachers.

Transcend the ordinary and awaken to new possibilities at the eighth annual ILLUMINATE Film Festival November 5th-13th. Be uplifted and inspired by the year’s best conscious films, showing in-person and online.

It’s time to come together to play, laugh, and cry with life-affirming films, immersive healing experiences and through connection with like-minded community. Illuminate Film Festival is a 501(c)(3) sponsored organization pioneering the growth of the emerging conscious film movement. The grassroots effort has evolved from a local event in Sedona, Arizona and is now attracting a global audience. ILLUMINATE has made it its mission to discover and exhibit cinematic gems that elevate consciousness and inspire personal, community and planetary transformation. The festival has aimed to foster and advance the genre of conscious cinema, earning it a reputation as the nation’s leading festival of its kind and a haven where conscious films and filmmakers are discovered, industry connections are made, enlightened ideas are shared, and audiences are transformed.

Joining ILLUMINATE this year are world-renowned luminaries James Van Praagh, Sister Jenna, Lynne Twist and Louie Schwartzberg, who will guide the audience toward creating mankind’s greatest leap to awakened consciousness.

Kicking off in Sedona Nov 5-6, the annual gathering features a weekend of in-person red carpet screenings, luminary workshops, community events and parties, followed by a week of global virtual programming (Nov 6-13).

Those attending in person will be the first in North America to watch Opening Night film, Amma's Way: A Journey to Embrace the World Again and experience the astounding love, compassion, and joy of a visionary woman known globally for her hugs. Top off the evening with a Sing into Love Musical Immersion led by Ananda Das, followed by a fabulous VIP Opening Night party.

At ILLUMINATE attendees will find the ideal environment for personal enrichment and spiritual healing as they continue working towards personal and community transformation. They will deepen their sacred journey with films featuring mind-body-spirit visionaries such as Deepak Chopra, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Caroline Myss, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Jack Kornfield, Lynne Twist, Michael Beckwith, and more.

The virtual festival opens on Sunday, November 6th, with Gratitude Revealed from acclaimed filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg (Fantastic Fungi), where we see gratitude as a proven pathway back from the disconnection we feel in our lives. Followed by an incredible slate of seven virtual screenings that explore unconventional healing methods, personal transformation, nature and science, the power of music and more. Plus, enjoy live virtual Q&A’s with filmmakers and Reel Healing workshops wherever you are!

Why not invite friends and family to a watch party… because everything’s better when we shine together!
