Welcome

Another year. Another trip around the Sun (584 million miles) for you and me. Another Film Festival to enjoy. The mechanics of the universe still seem to be in working order. 

Welcome to Frank’s 29th Fall Film Festival. For the next three weeks we will use our modest little festival to celebrate the unique magic and emotional power of “The Movies” – the most popular art form the world has ever known.

If you think about it, movies are really wonderful things. We probably take them too much for granted. The recorded movie image has become the treasury of our past, a window on our present and a glimpse into our future. No other art form can so effortlessly transport us to other times and places, real and imagined and in so doing tell the story of humanity and the human condition we all share: Love. Hope. Fear. Loneliness. Meaning. Mortality. Eternity.

This year thirteen films have been carefully selected reflecting the variety and vitality of this liveliest of the arts. These films deserve to be seen where they were meant to be seen – on the big screen. 

This year: A young man with Down syndrome sets out on the road to realize his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. The last female bee keeper in Europe tries to save her beloved bees from invaders. One of the 20th Century’s most popular singers is silenced by Parkinson’s disease. Two dreamers and a dog go on a hopeful odyssey to bring harmony to their lives. Madness rages in the jungles of Viet Nam. A family uneasily hides a secret from their beloved grandmother. Musical creativity explodes in an L.A. canyon. A determined woman becomes the skipper of the first all-female round the world yacht race crew. A young Palestinian trainee on a popular Arab soap opera is given screenplay advice from an Israeli Checkpoint soldier. A woman living a hard life in Scotland dreams of becoming a Nashville Country Music Star. At a Catholic residential school, a seven year old Indigenous American boy is deprived of his heritage and witnesses abuse but finds salvation in the game of Ice Hockey. There’s more too.

So, for the next three weeks, plan on enjoying our annual celebration of the Magic of The Movies by going to lots of Festival Films at The Twin Cinema with your fellow travelers around the sun. 

See you at the movies,
Frank
