Tickets are $10 for section passes or $20 for a festival day pass.

Several notable films being screened include Millie & The Lords, a film that pays homage to the Young Lord Party (YLP) through a young woman’s journey of self-discovery; Gentle Giant, a portrait on Andre Rodgers, the first Bahamian baseball play to enter major league baseball; and The Price of Memory, a documentary on the historic effort by a group of Rastafarian leaders who petitioned Queen Elizabeth II for reparations.
