"Burnt Feathers, Broken Wings" - Directed by Cady McClain - Goes International!
We are thrilled to announce our youths' short documentary film, Burnt Feathers, Broken Wings, has been officially selected as part of two international film festivals!
The Anatolia International Film Festival [Turkey] and Golden Jury International Film Festival [India] have both seen the power of our youth telling their stories, their way. We are so honored and excited for the wider impact the film will have as new audiences from across the globe are helping put our Kids In The Spotlight.
Cady McClain [Days of Our Lives, Seeing is Believing: Women Direct] has been directing with Kids In The Spotlight for a few years and was requested by the group of ladies behind the short documentary. They entrusted Cady with their stories and, together, their impact has been incredible to see.
Burnt Feathers, Broken Wings previously took home Best Social Justice Film from the Santa Fe Film Festival and Best Documentary Short from the Mystic Film Festival. It was also an Award Winner with the 2021 Drive In Events and an Official Selection of the NYC International Film Festival and Indie Short Fest.
As you know, this success is yours as well as ours, because we couldn't do this work without our supporters and funders!
