Agoura Hills Screenwriters Film Festival 2015

There are a lot of people who live in and around Agoura Hills with artistic talent and considerable accomplishments already behind them. It’s so wonderful when they collaborate with our city’s programs to bring enjoyable events to everyone who lives here.

Next weekend, the Agoura Hills Cultural Arts Council, in conjunction with the Regency Theater, is hosting a screenwriters’ film festival:

filmFest2015Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio are leading a day and a half of events that will celebrate the art of screenwriting, starting with a VIP reception on Friday, September 25. As screenwriters themselves, they will host a Q&A after a Saturday morning screening of their film “Despicable Me” on the 26th.

So grab your budding screenwriter children (or your actual screenwriter children, I’m sure there are plenty of those around here!) and make a weekend of it! See the Cultural Arts Council website for tickets and more information.

FREE Movie Tickets For The Little Red Wagon

Free tickets to the first 5 commenters below.*

You know you need a break, Mom or Dad.  Short days at school.  Holiday parties for work, school, sports teams and friends.  Shopping, meal planning, Christmas-tree buying, and more and more every day.

What if you could haul your family to the Regency Theater and veg out for an hour or so while your kids watch a movie that will not rot their brains or make them want you to buy the toy that goes with it?  What if it inspired them to help others?  

Lucky for you, The Little Red Wagon is that film, and it’s playing NEXT WEEK right here at the Regency in Agoura Hills, AND I have 5 sets of tickets for my readers!

The Little Red Wagon is the story of Zach Bonner, a 12-year-old boy in Tampa, Florida who started a crusade to help children left homeless after Hurricane Charlie hit the area in 2004.  From getting food and water to very needy families, to walking from Tampa to the White House to raise awareness about homeless children, Bonner’s efforts have helped thousands upon thousands of children.  He now runs The Little Red Wagon as a nonprofit to help underprivileged kids.

The movie was produced by local filmmaker Dr. Michael Guillen, who has been making appearances at elementary schools to help spread the message that Bonner started 8 years ago.

I dare you not to cry during this movie. You’ll probably want to take a nap, but hopefully you will be moved to act, even if it’s just to take a bag of nonperishable groceries to a local food pantry to help our needy neighbors.

The first five people who comment here will win a four-pack of tickets to see the film during its limited local run December 10 – 13 at the Regency Theater in Agoura Hills. Just make sure you enter your email address so I can contact you directly and the tickets will be mailed to via priority overnight mail.
