Celebrating Aging in America: A Film Festival in Honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Older Americans Act
CALL FOR FILMS ABOUT AGING
The Healthy Aging Partnership (HAP) invites you to participate in our first Celebrating Aging in America: A Film Festival in Honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Older Americans Act. Attached is the call for submission for movie shorts for the festival, scheduled for early May 2014 (date to be determined).
HAP is a coalition of over 30 nonprofit, government and community organizations in King County, Washington. We offer a broad range of information and resources to older adults and caregivers through networking, education, outreach and the promotion of a free confidential Senior Information and Assistance line, 1-888-4ELDERS. HAP works to reduce barriers between generations and seeks to create opportunities to counteract ageism in our society. We believe the arts, and in particular film, are an important way to approach the discussion of aging in our community.
The Older Americans Act was the first federal legislation, created in 1965, to provide comprehensive services for older adults, and continues to have a significant impact on improving quality of life and well-being as Americans age.
Every image that shows the possibilities for aging with energy, vitality, creativity and compassion makes a difference in how we all see the process of aging. Persons of all ages and diverse communities, who use film as their creative and investigative tool, can contribute in vital ways to encourage social change. We hope you will consider joining us in this effort. Please forward this invitation to others who may also be interested.
