About March on Washington Film Festival

Founded in 2013, on the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, the March on Washington Film Festival (MOWFF), now in its 11th year, is a civil rights and social justice legacy project. This annual storytelling experience focuses on illuminating the untold events and unsung heroes of the American civil rights movement and inspiring renewed passion for activism. By leveraging the power of film, music, scholarship, and the arts, the Festival shares important and influential stories to connect the past, present, and future in the fight toward social change in America and throughout the world.
