Inspire Film Festival Schedule + Ticket Giveaway

By  | 

A new film festival is coming to The Woodlands! Starting February 23, the inaugural Inspire Film Festival will feature approximately 20 films over four days that illustrate the power of one person to make great change in the world.

Festival director Jane Minarovic conceived of the festival as an opportunity to showcase films that deliver messages of inspiration to their audiences. She is a filmmaker herself who knows from experience what it takes to mount a successful film festival. “Besides the films themselves, Inspire will also include panel discussions, networking and social events, and special guests,” she said. The slates of films chosen for the festival are perfect for all adult audiences, as well as for younger audiences 12 years old and up.
