If you have thoughts about how we talk about death (or don't), face death, remember the dead, or deal with dying in the modern world then join us for The Death Salon Film Festival. We'll explore the history of death rituals, attitudes toward death and end of life issues, and alternative ways to deal with death as part of our lives. The evening will begin with a juried selection of short films, followed by a panel discussion and Audience Choice and Jurors’ Choice awards announcement. The program will conclude with a screening of Grace Lee's short documentary film, Suiting Dennis, about a family planning a green funeral involving a mushroom spore suit that allows for natural decomposition.

In addition, there is a special tour of the Funeral Museum planned for Sunday, September 18th.
