DocNights at Willow Grand Finale Film...

"Gone South: How Canada Invented Hollywood", is a hilarious and investigative
 look at the long history and major influence Canadians have had on the development of American pop culture. It features celebrity interviews and classic archival images from the very beginnings of Hollywood right through to the present day. The documentary presents the argument that without the slow and subversive influence of Canada, Hollywood as it is known would not and could not exist.  Jonathan Lederman, host of "The Anything Bucket" on WRPBiTV will be present to introduce the film which includes interviews with the following celebrities appearing in the film: Howie Mandel, David Foster, Alex Trebek, Alan Thicke, Shannon Tweed, Dave Thomas, Tommy Chong, Will Sasso, Neve Campbell, Harland Williams, Monty Hall, Arthur Hiller, David Shore, Ted Kotcheff, and Erin Karpluk.

Our film festival is a non-profit film festival and we live our Mission, Vision and Values everyday.
Our Vision is of course "To deliver cultural enrichment and opportunities for the support and development of documentary film making worldwide." While our Values include: Innovation, Communication, Integrity Cooperation, Sensitivity, Support of Diversity and Service to Society. With this in mind, when we heard that one of our Community Partners from High Tech Science Productions was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer, we new that as a part of our DocMiami family we would do what we could to support him and his family during this difficult time. Now retired from High Tech Science Productions, New York native and present Boca Raton resident, Rick Newman had,  because of his love of science, opened 22 Science & Technology Centers at Schools, Scout Camps, Science Museums and Study Centers all across the country. He also loans out (Free of charge)  World Famous Robots including "Lost in Space" Robby the Robot  and "Star Wars" R2D2,  space artifacts and more to schools, museums, science expo's, libraries, and robotics competitions around the world. Years before his cancer diagnoses, he and his family had put on Holiday Light Shows at their personal residence in order to raise funds and awareness for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
