2nd Annual Florida Family & Faith International Film Festival Powered By AARP Florida Celebrates Caregivers This Thanksgiving Season
Independent Film Initiative Works to Empower Its Community By Leveraging the Power of Storytelling
AARP Florida Director of State Operations Dionne Polite said, "As we recognize and honor National Caregivers Month, AARP Florida is proud to support this celebration of empowerment through filmmaking. We are sharing these incredible stories with audiences around the world, and we hope Floridians will benefit from and enjoy this tribute to independent filmmakers. Join us in exploring heartfelt stories of caregivers and their families."
National Caregivers Month is a time to recognize the 2.9 million Floridians who are caring for loved ones, according to AARP Florida. In 2020, many caregivers have been overwhelmed given the pandemic and AARP Florida works every day to be a resource for them and their families. The organization is also presenting the Florida Family & Faith International Film Festival powered by AARP Florida as a way to say, "thank you" to caregivers. The virtual film festival will be free to AARP members and feature 20 movies from such countries as Spain, South Africa, Israel and the United States.
"Storytelling and imagery through movies truly matter in our society, especially when it comes to positively changing the perspectives (and behaviors) of how we all view each other as fellow human beings on this planet," states Dr. Tyrha M. Lindsey-Warren, Lead Producer of the Florida Family & Faith International Film Festival. "We are grateful to the support of AARP Florida for this second year of our film festival event that truly embraces our mission of being 'dedicated to EMPOWERING the creative spirit, SERVING with heart, and CELEBRATING all.'"
