Now in its fourth year, Movies & Meaning is a three-day conference, festival and community gathering, sharing better stories for better lives and a better world. It’s a life-changing experience of wisdom, inspiration, challenge and connection.

There will be seven stories paired with seven conversations, and seven opportunities for positive change – featuring special guests (including me!) in person: Mira Nair – Academy Award nominated, Golden Globe & BAFTA winning filmmaker. James McLeary – transformational leader and CEO of the Inside Circle Foundation. Gareth Higgins – Irish peace activist, writer & storyteller, and founder of Movies & Meaning.

Movies & Meaning will host screenings of iconic classics, overlooked gems, and brand new films, including a very special screening of Queen of Katwe followed by a public conversation between its director Mira Nair and myself; and regional premieres of Summer in the Forest, a transcendent film about the history of the L’Arche movement which The Guardian calls “breathtakingly beautiful,” followed by a workshop teaching tools for solidarity with vulnerable people; and The Work – a powerful documentary about “masculinity detox” in prison, followed by a conversation with The Work’s own pioneer.

The Movies & Meaning Experience takes in downtown Asheville, NC one of the most creative and beautiful small cities in the US. Registration for the full three day event is $299, but sliding scale registration fees are offered to enable folk to come and pay less (you can also support the community by paying more if you like!).

The schedule is online at with more items to be added in the coming weeks. Space is limited and a large registration is expected, so register now to join us for an event that has been described by previous attendees as “truly transformative,” and “a profound experience of joy and depth.”
