Moondance has been offered the unique opportunity to hold the 2013 film festival event in the historic, New England seacoast village of Mystic, Connecticut!
Dates: September 26-29
Plan to attend & participate!
Indie & Foreign Film Screenings • Workshops • Master Classes • Film Market • Networking Parties • Awards Ceremony & Reception • Celebrities • Opening Night & Closing Night Galas • Seminars • Private Consultations With the Pros
ALL FESTIVAL EVENTS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
Moondance has been held in Hollywood at Universal Studios and in New York City at the Tribeca Cinemas, as well as in Boulder, Colorado, the festival’s original home. The film festival has also been invited to relocate to many other locations, such as Malibu; NYC; San Antonio, TX; St. Petersburg, Russia; Sydney, Australia; London; Paris; Kauai, HI; Prince Edward Island, Canada, and many others, but I gladly selected the historic seaside village of Mystic, Connecticut, as the very best destination and new home for the Moondance, because of Mystic’s unique New England location between New York City and Boston, its culture, and its heartfelt welcoming ambience. Come join us!. ~~ Elizabeth English, founder & executive director
Moondance truly is “The American Cannes“
(but without the huge expense!)
Make A Film Foundation grants film wishes to children with serious or life-threatening medical conditions, helping them to create short film legacies by teaming them with noted actors, directors and writers. We believe the art of filmmaking is not only healing and therapeutic, but also offers hope and builds self-esteem. The children get to write and star in their own short film. In our ‘Vidz 4 Kidz’ program, we go into various hospitals and facilities, teaming the children with hand-held video cameras and film mentors who help them to create ‘mini-movies’ about their lives and their challenges. “Love one another. Make each day count. Dream big.“ http://makeafilmfoundation.org/
“The Rufous Hummingbird was common when we were kids. But it’s just one of dozens of familiar bird species headed for trouble. A Rufous Hummingbird weighs less than a French fry and can fly 1,000 miles, without food or rest. They may be mighty mites, but there’s one challenge they may not be able to overcome: us. National Audubon Society scientists estimate that the global population of these amazing flyers has declined nearly 60% in the past three decades.
What’s pushing hummingbirds toward the brink? A deadly combination of habitat destruction, toxic pollution and the spread of invasive plants. And now a new threat may overshadow them all: ecological chaos caused by a warming climate. Warmer weather prompts earlier flowering of nectar-bearing plants that hummingbirds rely on during their epic migrations. If the flowers are gone before the birds arrive, they may starve.
Will our children and grandchildren grow up with the wonder of watching a hummingbird hover over the flowerbed or sip nectar from a backyard feeder?
Audubon has always been at the forefront of protecting birds and their habitats. And as threats have grown, so have the breadth and sophistication of our conservation strategies. Donate to Audubon today and your gift will be matched dollar for dollar. www.audubon.org
“We have it backwards. We think that when we overcome difficulty, then we will be happy, but it’s happiness itself that delivers us from chaos. Happiness is being able to dance through the difficult times, and learn what they are here to teach us. Your potential is waiting for you in the challenges you will choose to face. A desire for bigger things is good if it propels us to nurture the blessings in our own life, and to do the work necessary to create even more. The grass isn’t greener on the other side of the fence. It’s greener on the lawn most cared for.” ~ YEHUDA BERG
“War can be abolished forever by providing clothing, food and shelter, instead of bombs, destroyers and rockets.” ~ TRYGVE LIE
“One act of beneficence, one act of usefulness, is worth all the abstract sentiment in the world.” ~ ANN RADCLIFFE
“A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night, and, in between, he does what he wants to do.” ~ BOB DYLAN
“Michelangelo didn’t paint the Sistine Chapel while he was texting on his smart phone, and Tolstoy didn’t write “War and Peace” while he was watching a football game on TV. As much as we may feel productive when we are multi-tasking, we can’t be at our best when we our energy is scattered. Doing only one thing that is truly incredible is far better than doing a hundred things that are all mediocre.” ~ YEHUDA BERG
