2010 GI Film Festival

Thank you to all those who are helping Brothers at War go International! Thank you also to Paul Brian for introducing us to Jack Kelly who is playing a radio commercial for Brothers at War on his two radio stations in Cannes 64 times over the next four days!

For all of you in DC, I wanted to let you know that tonight Lt Dan Band For The Common Good will be playing at the GI Film Festival. I have had the opportunity to see this excellent film by Jonathan Flora: In addition to the great music and the interactions with the troops all over the world, the film peers into a man’s quest to do what he can do to support those for whom he cares deeply for and admires. It is both moving and inspirational. Gary Sinise and Jonathan Flora will be in attendance.

On Friday night, Patrol Base Jakerl will make its World Premiere! David Scantling journeyed to Afghanistan where he embedded with a Marine unit in the dangerous Helmand Province. Drawing from his expert background in economic rehabilitation of war torn countries, he captured the philosophy and execution of counter insurgency strategy in action. I am personally jealous of all who get to be the first in the world to see this important work!

These are just two of many great films and events happening at the GI Film Festival this week. Go to GI Film Festival to explore all the great films that they are helping to launch and take this opportunity to interact with the filmmakers, festival executives, and patriotic celebrities who are dedicated to telling the GI’s story.
