Hippie Family Values was honored with two awards in October. The Communal Studies Association presented its 2019 Outstanding Project Award to the film at its annual conference. As noted in my Autumn 2018 post, the CSA membership includes an eclectic mix of intentional community dwellers along with scholars from anthropology, history, religious studies, political science and other disciplines. So it was particularly gratifying to be recognized by these experts in all things community. I also had the pleasure of returning to the East Bay Media Center for a screening at the Berkeley Video and Film Festival, which presented HFV with the Grand Festival Award for Utopian Documentary.
