The Arkhaios Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Film Festival is an annual juried competition, part of the Archaeology Month Celebrations taking place in the United States. It is also an educational event, showcasing the discovery of past cultures gained from ethnological or archaeological research, illustrated by documentary films. These films are of great artistic and scientific quality but may be unknown because of limited access to traditional distribution channels. It also encourages the interest of local filmmakers to apply their art to State history. This in-person festival is free and open to the public, no tickets or pre-registration is required. Festival films are also available virtually for free on the Arkhaios website the second week of October.
