060 Films That Feed Captures the Spirit of the Holiday Season
Films That Feed is Chad Clinton Freeman’s brainchild and it’s sure to be a wonderful addition for Theatre7. John Donovan and I had fun speaking with Chad for Filmmakers Notebook and finding out how he came up with the idea for this heartwarming festival. Kicking off during First Friday on December 2nd, the opening film “Phyllis and Harold” from Cindy Kleine will be screened on December 8th at 7pm. “Dirt! The Movie”, which is narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis will be shown on the 9th and Noah Hutton’s ‘More to Live For” will follow the evening of the 10th with documentary shorts “”Dad’s Vietnam: The War Experience of Greg Schwarze” and “Our World War II Fathers” closing out the festival along with the short narrative “Whatever It Takes” and the documentary feature “Without a Home” from Rachel Fleischer.
Aside from these amazing “message” films what makes this event so special is that there are no tickets being sold in order to attend. Instead Chad and his partner Derek Stonebarger decided that a donation for the Toys for Tots box or 2 cans of non-perishable food for Three Square would be the cost of admission to see a movie. The mission here is to provide thought-provoking and socially and environmentally stimulating films that will educate while they entertain while providing an opportunity for audience members to reach out and help others. As you listen to Chad in this interview I’m sure you’ll find that this is a great way to warm up for the holiday season at Theatre7.
