Come To Salem For…

Four days of films and discussions that elicit common sense, common decency, and the common good, while celebrating the wisdom of Alfred North Whitehead. With ten films meant to inform, inspire, and amuse, the Common Good Film Festival celebrates the work of filmmakers that tell the stories of those dedicated to the benefit of humanity.

Join us online in 2021

Due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty of being able to gather in person in February, we have decide to shift to a virtual festival for 2021. The good news is that regardless of where you are in the world, you will have the chance to join us for 10 feature films and 10 short films that awaken our sense of the common good–something we all need now more than ever!

Watch our website for more details in the coming months.
