ATTENDING THE FESTIVAL

For 2018, the Pembroke Taparelli Arts and Film Festival will focus on Health and Environmental injustice. Our goal is to bring awareness to the inequities within healthcare and the impacts of food deserts, airborne pollutants, and climate change on minority, poor and marginalized communities through the use of narrative and documentary film-making, music, and other visual arts. New additions to the festival this year will also engage youth (12-18) and young adults (19-25) to be the change that they seek through film screenings of youth oriented social justice films and a music event our PTAFF “Wellness Tour”
