Marvels of Media Festival 2024

Mar 28 — Mar 30, 2024

The Marvels of Media Festival kicks off with a festive opening night celebration and recognizes outstanding films created by autistic media-makers with screenings, panel discussions, and media workshops. Audience members will have a chance to learn from professional filmmakers on the spectrum through media workshops and panel discussions. 

The free festival is part of the Museum’s year-round Marvels of Media initiative, which showcases, celebrates, and supports autistic media-makers of all ages and skill sets. The third annual Marvels of Media Festival expands the Museum’s accessibility efforts for autistic visitors through the creation of a sensory-friendly space in the Media Lab and sensory kits, which are available at the front desk. 

This year’s festival was organized with the Marvels of Media Steering Committee, including MoMI’s Media Educator and Access Educator Miranda Lee, MoMI’s Assistant Curator of Public Programs Tiffany Joy Butler, MoMI’s Director of Education Leonardo Santana-Zubieta, writer and comedian Maylin Pavletic, filmmaker and playwright Jackson Tucker-Meyer, President and Founder of Strokes of Genius, Inc. Rosa Martínez, and Work-Based Learning Specialist of Tech Kids Unlimited Halenur Komsul.
