Authors bring presentation to film festival as a fundraising event.
Greentown, PA September 2004 -- Patricia Gatto and John De Angelis will present Milton's Dilemma and the Consequences of Bullying at the Black Bear Film Festival in Milford, PA at on Saturday, October 16, 2004.
The performance, featuring an animated reading of their children's book and original songs and music, is geared toward children (ages 5-9) and their families. After the performance, they will answer questions and autograph copies of their book, MILTON'S DILEMMA. To benefit next year's Festival, the authors and screenwriters will donate a portion of their proceeds from the sale of this book.
This year's Festival dates are Friday-Sunday, October 15-17, 2004. Now in its fifth year, the annual Black Bear Film Festival is known for the screening of high quality, often yet unreleased new films, and has included the world premieres of such major movies as John Sayles’ "SunshineState" and Jim Carrey’s "The Majestic". But what makes the event even more special is that directors, producers, actors, cinematographers, costume designers, set designers and other creative crew attend the screenings and then come on stage in the free Film Salon to talk in detail about the making of their movies.
Due to its overwhelming popularity, the Film Salon will be expanded to two tents, located adjacent to Milford Theatre & next to the Hospitality Tent. As in the past, the 2004 Film Salon brings together industry insiders with moviegoers to educate and entertain within an intimate setting - all free to the public.
From family fun to thought-provoking talk and soul-soaring films, plan to join the thousands of visitors this year at Milford's highly acclaimed and exciting cultural event. Updates and full details on the Festival are posted regularly on the Festival’s website at htttp://www.blackbearfilm.com
