Friday: Surgery Ship — A team of volunteer doctors and nurses serve a unique ship: crammed with medical supplies, this floating hospital sails to the poorest nations on earth. They will face the most severe medical issues — not seen in other parts of the world. But medical challenges are only part of the story. 1 pm

Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia — Follow the life and climbs of legendary alpinist Jeff Lowe, through his visionary ascents around the world up to his current dance with a terminal disease. A mind-bending adventure through time and space. 4 pm

The Man Who Knew Infinity — Srinivasa Ramanujan is a man of boundless intelligence that even the abject poverty of his home in India cannot crush. When a British mathematics professor invites him to Cambridge, Ramanujan’s theories and cultural values run headlong into the prejudiced realities of a Britain heading into World War I. 7 pm

Saturday: Lives Well Lived — What is a life “well-lived?” We asked forty people, aged 75-100, and they shared their secrets, wit and wisdom. Forty voices prove that aging is something to cherish; “retirement” doesn’t mean retiring, and growing older doesn’t mean growing silent. Preceded by the short film, In the Blink. 10 am

Short Film Program1 pm

Fanarchy — Explore a subculture of die-hard fans who risk life, limb and bankruptcy in their quest to pay homage to the films and stories they love. Preceded by the short film, The Dogist. 1 pm

Double Feature: His Name is Midnight & Cowboy Christmas — Celebrate National Day of the Cowboy with two fantastic films! His Name is Midnight is the true story of a horse — a prince of the Big Sky Country — who was lost to auction and human cruelty before being rediscovered. Cowboy Christmas shows us a year in the life of four professional rodeo cowboys, as they travel a grueling circuit, sustaining injuries and loneliness in pursuit of fame and fortune. 4 pm
