About Festival Content Considerations

Content considerations are notices of potentially triggering or sensitive content for audiences. As many of our films have not been rated by a ratings board, we have identified what we believe to be the most common triggers for sensitive viewers. However, we understand that triggers are often personal and can vary widely. While our content consideration warnings can serve as a guide, please use discretion when choosing films to watch from our program.
