We recently learned that “Rise and Dream” is an official selection in the 2012 Thin Line Film Fest, an international documentary film festival, which will run from Feb. 10 to Feb. 20 in Denton, Texas.
This will be our world premiere ñ the first time the film will be shown to the public!
If you live in or near the Denton or Dallas/Fort Worth areas or are in the mood for a road trip, please come and see the movie! We know you’ll love the film, and we’re hoping for a packed house to show support for the film and for CFCA.
Rise and Dream will be showing at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, in the Campus Theatre, located one block west of the downtown square: 214 West Hickory St., Denton, Texas 76201. Seating is limited, so we encourage you to get tickets soon.
Do you know anyone in or near Denton or the Dallas/Fort Worth area? If so, please forward this information to them and encourage them to attend as well. This is our first film festival, and we really need your help in getting the word out.
A little context about “Rise and Dream”
“Rise and Dream” follows the story of 13 teenagers living with the challenges of poverty in a volatile region of the Philippines. The teens volunteer to learn the music traditions of their culture for a once-in-a-lifetime concert.
The film, produced by CFCA, is intended to give viewers a new understanding of the potential that exists within people living in poverty. We hope it will raise awareness about the heroic struggles of families trying to break the cycle of extreme poverty seen in developing countries ó where many struggle to live on just a few dollars each day.
Please visit the “Rise and Dream” page on the Thin Line Film Fest website to purchase tickets and get more information.
Thanks so much!
