We recently learned that “Rise and Dream” is an official selection in the 2012 Chagrin Documentary Film Fest,† the 2012 Kansas International Film Festival and the Global Peace Film Festival.

The Global Peace Film Festival will be Sept. 18-23 in Orlando, Fla. The other two festivals will be in October 2012. We look forward to sharing the film with these new audiences.

A little context about “Rise and Dream”

The film 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.
