If you happen to be near Topanga Canyon, California on May 10th, 2008, please come by. This fundraiser for our kids’ amazing co-op preschool has been taking up WAY too much of our time, but it is going to be a thing of beauty. Three stages of children’s music, theater, and storytelling; roving clowns; face-painting; kid’s recycled arts projects; eclectic vendors and food; and much more. Here’s the site.
But what, you ask, does this have to do with film and television? Nothing, and everything. Not to wax poetic, but this festival is a great example of the collaborative community spirit that only kids can inspire. Because we know that everything we do for them - every story we tell them - somehow helps build the future. May the tales we tell live up to the responsibility this entails, and be blessed by the creative energy it takes to do it well.
Lucky 8 has been coordinating publicity and promotion for this event.
