The Movies & Meaning Festival, presented by The Porch magazine, unites people for a weekend of art, storytelling, and transformation—and gives attendees tools for social justice work and community healing.
This April 27-30, join the growing global movement for healing, justice, and reconciliation with a community tackling these things with humor and grace. Our speakers include Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple; Brian McLaren, author, activist, and theologian; Malidoma Somé, West African elder and teacher; Mona Haydar, poet and activist; and Gareth Higgins, film critic, peace activist, and Irish storyteller.

The flagship publication behind Movies & Meaning, The Porch is a slow and substantive conversation in a world of publications rushing to out-publish, out-shout, and out-do each other to convince readers that the world is in crisis.
