    Storm Lake, screening on August 15, follows the efforts of Pulitzer Prize– winning journalist Art Cullen and his colleagues as they fight for the survival of their small-town newspaper. The film held its world premiere at the virtual 2021 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.

    Recent 2022 festival alum Mama Bears will conclude the outdoor screenings on August 29. Mama Bears explores the journeys of Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears” ­–  whose profound love for their LGBTQ+ children turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community – and Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.
