Opening the festival was guest speaker Angelo Pizzo (Rudy, Hoosiers) he gave insightful advice to the crowd talking about the importance of story and character as well as being asked question after question about the importance of You Tube.
The opening film was Kate Chaplin’s First They Came for… “I was so nervous,” said Chaplin, “I just really wanted everyone to like the film and not throw things.” It wasn’t long until Chaplin got her answer. The film commenced to appreciable applause.
Next up for Chaplin and First They Came for….is a showing at the IMAX theater in Indianapolis where the film is an official selection in the Really Big Film Festival on February 23rd. When asked how Chaplin feels seeing her movie on an IMAX screen she said, “A little film with a big heart may just feel at home on the big screen.”
