WHISKEY TREATY ROADSHOW TO PERFORM AT VF15
THE WHISKEY TREATY ROADSHOW IS A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT THAT BRINGS TOGETHER MASSACHUSETTS SINGER-SONGWRITERS IN THE VEIN OF AMERICANA, ROCK AND ROOTS-FOLK MUSIC TO AUDIENCES THROUGHOUT THE COMMONWEALTH AND BEYOND.
This particular program is especially significant, as it is a special benefit screening where a portion of the proceeds will be donated to NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. The initiative to bring awareness to mental illness was inspired by the several projects featured this year at VF15, which feature thematic elements or characters dealing with mental illness - amongst these: SINA FORMA, A SILENT STRUGGLE, BROKEN JAM, and the Feature Screenplay Competition Finalists, SILENCE and SOLE CAPTAIN.
Other films in the A POTPOURRI OF VISIONS line-up: BUMMERTOWN, CHEESE DOG: THE MOVIE, SEPTEMBER SKETCH BOOK, A SILENT STRUGGLE, WITHOUT A DOUBT, ELLA AT THE LIBRARY, ELGIN PARK, and PERIPLANET.
