Capturing Grace will receive its world premiere this October at the prestigious Mill Valley Film Festival in Marin, California.
Since founding the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1977, founder Mark Fishkin has shepherded this once small, three-day showcase into an eleven-day, internationally acclaimed cinema event presenting a wide variety of new films from around the world in an engaged, community setting.
The festival has an impressive track record of launching new films and new filmmakers, and has earned a reputation as a filmmakers' festival by celebrating the best in American independent and foreign films, along side high-profile and prestigious award contenders.
Five of the last six films that have gone on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture (Slumdog Millionaire, The King’s Speech, The Artist, Argo, 12 Years a Slave), were screened at MVFF with filmmakers and cast members in attendance.
"It's one of the more prestigious film festivals in the country so it's a great honor," said director/producer Dave Iverson. "We are going to work with the local Bay Area Dance for PD projects to schedule some special events which will hopefully bring more attention to all that dance has to offer people with Parkinson's."
