Chairman Jones Sparkles at RiverRun

Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Chairman Jones had two well-attended and very successful screenings–March 30th and April 1st, 2017– at the RiverRun International Film Festival in Winston-Salem, NC.   Chairman Jones sparkled at  Hanesbrand Theater, a wonderful screening  venue with high quality video and audio projection, where every seat has an excellent view of the screen.

Attendees said they were “inspired,” “uplifted,” and “more hopeful,” by this story of courage and leadership during a difficult time in race relations in our nation’s history– not unlike the social and political upheaval we are currently experiencing in our country!

“…The story of your father’s life is so inspiring and uplifting. You honor his memory and legacy beautifully and sensitively…I got a feel of the place, the people and the time and was moved by it all…a truly memorable film.”  —Vicki Scott

Chairman Jones continues to captivate diverse audiences everywhere it screens; and, on July 30, 2016, it captured the Audience Choice Award at the Real to Reel Film Festival in King’s Mountain, NC.
