Film festival organizers hope to make an 'Impact' during RNCby Euan Kerr, Minnesota Public Radio
Some folks are coming to the RNC to get delegates to watch movies. For the four days of the Convention the non-partisan Impact Film Festival will hold free screenings of new movies about healthcare, water protection, disaster recovery and other social challenges.
St. Paul, Minn. — The Impact Film Festival opened last week at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
Festival co-founder Jamie Shor told Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr when film makers heard about the chance to show their work to policy makers, they not only offered their films for free, they all agreed to attend the screenings in person.
All the films but one are being screened at the Landmark Center. The films are free and open to the public but Shor recommends reserving a seat through the festival website.
