2018 Welcome to the Second Annual Celebrate Aging Film Festival We are excited to present Brookdale’s second annual Celebrate Aging Film Festival! The festival is an opportunity for residents and associates to work together on a creative project using only iPad technology. The purpose of this project is to help change the negative perception of aging and communicate a positive, uplifting or touching message that celebrates aging. Our nominating committee had a challenging role in selecting nine finalists after reviewing the many inspirational, funny and thought-provoking films that were submitted by more than 60 of our communities. Today’s program will present the Ecolab People’s Choice Award and winners nominated in the following categories: Best Writing, Best Technical Design, The Courage Award, Best Acting and Best Picture. Representatives from each of the nine nominated communities will be welcomed as they walk the Red Carpet leading into the historic Franklin Theatre. We are so excited to partner for the second year with our title sponsor Ecolab. It is with their unwavering support and generous sponsorship of this momentous event that we can change the perception of aging and celebrate our residents!
