Dying To Know: Ram Dass and Timothy Leary

Directed by Gay Dillingham

Directed by Pat Murphy

Featuring leading experts in the field of psychedelic research, Psychedelia tells the story of medical professionals who have legally re-introduced psychedelics into their practices. First-hand accounts from an end-of-life anxiety study show the potential of these substances to aid us individually and shift society at large.

What People Are Saying About the Shift Your World Film Festival...

The Shift Your World Film Festival was absolutely fantastic! It was very inspirational and motivational. During this challenging time, we all have to deal with so much negativity, anxiety, loneliness, etc. The festival provided a sense of community and gathering of people with the same values and goals. I’m sure it boosted the spirits of all attendees. The content was highly curated and it gave me hope for the future. It also showed that there is still hope for humanity. The cherry on the top was that the whole festival was fully free. Thank you so much to The Shift Network and to all organizers!

— Lucia, Canada

What an amazing number of relevant, fascinating, and well-done films for our time!

— Trudy Sanders, South Pasadena, California

I am so heartened to see the practical presentation of our ability to make the shift. I give a standing ovation to this generation’s attitude and fortitude in shifting the devastation my generation thoughtlessly created through our blind ecstasy.

— Blanche Black, Jordan River, Canada

Shift Your World Film Festival was an inspirational film festival discussing issues that truly matter… and free! Everyone can gain knowledge on issues presented in an easy-access format with thought-provoking discussions.

— Kelly Lyon, Boca Raton, Florida

I really looked forward to watching everything and was impressed with the content, quality of the films, and most of all the messages that you are putting out there as we go through an awakening; this is the approach that is so desperately needed in this rapidly changing world. Bravo. Keeping it real.

— Monica, United Kingdom

Because of the information in the various films, I have made decisions to incorporate some of this into my own personal behaviors and lifestyles and to also recommend them to my clients in my practice.

— Debbie Byrd

The Shift Your World Film Festival offered material that was enlightening and thought-provoking. It touched on issues that need attention… issues that require us as humans on this planet to see and understand and become involved… to help bring into focus so as to educate and encourage change in our communities and on our planet. I’m excited to see this happen again next year.

Barbara Smith, Tottenham, Canada

The Shift Your World Film Festival is exactly what we need in these crazy times. Sharing stories that enlighten and heal the mind, body, and spirit is so needed.

— Dei, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
