CLEARWATER – Residents and associates at Regency Oaks Clearwater have been busy writing, filming, directing and editing their own movie for Brookdale’s inaugural Celebrate Aging Film Festival.

The festival was created to help change the perception of aging and to communicate a positive, uplifting or touching message that celebrates aging. The project was an opportunity for residents and associates to work together on a creative project using the iPad technology at each of the senior living communities.

“Our residents and associates really enjoyed putting together this film,” said Brant Spence, executive director of Regency Oaks Clearwater. “Age has no barrier on creativity and this process really showcased that. Our filmmakers are excited to be nominated as a finalist.”

Brookdale communities had until July 31 to submit their film. From there, 74 films were narrowed down to nine finalists in the Best Picture, Best Writing, Best Acting, Best Technical Design categories. The nine finalists were all eligible for the Ecolab’s People Choice Award, voted on by the public. In addition to these awards, one film will receive the Courage Award. This category will highlight the film that tells the story of courageous older adults who are living life to the fullest in the face of significant challenges.

Brookdale’s inaugural Celebrate Aging Film Festival is scheduled to take place in the historic Franklin Theatre, in Franklin, Tennessee in early October. Residents Frank Twait and Johanna Guzik and resident services director Georgina Hernandez-Norris will be traveling to middle Tennessee in hopes of coming home with one of the awards.
