Movies & Meaning: THE FOUNTAIN Film Screening + Panel Discussion

  • Community First! Village 9301 Hog Eye Road Austin, TX, 78724 United States (map)

Festival partner Mobile Loaves & Fishes invites you to a free movie night at our Community First! Village.


Grab chairs and a blanket, bring family and friends, and enjoy this special screening of The Fountain (2006) and a panel discussion afterwards centered around themes of death, resurrection, reincarnation, and eternal life as explored in both the film and in multiple faith traditions.

Come as early as 7:30pm to explore Community First! Village, pick your spot, and enjoy your favorite movie snacks from the Community Grille. Burgers, french fries, snacks, and drinks will be available for purchase (cards and cash accepted!).

The event is free, however a $5 donation would be highly appreciated. Donations can be made electronically when RSVPing to this event.

We encourage you to support our Community Grille rather than bringing outside food and drinks.

Dress in weather-appropriate clothing and don’t forget your flashlights and bug spray. We also recommend wearing closed-toe shoes.
