2016 ILLUMINATE FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES EXCITING LINE UP OF PREMIERES, AWARDS, PARTIES AND EVENTS FOR 3RD ANNUAL 5-DAY EVENT
NEW INAUGURAL AWARD: THE CONSCIOUS VISIONARY AWARD
Chaz Ebert to be Keynote speaker for Conscious Film Convergence
Alan Freedman, a man with an enormous heart and a human being whose enthusiasm for giving shows in a myriad of venues and ways will launch his new book “The Walk” where a portion of the sales will be donated to Sedona/Verde Valley Pride.
Alan shares the story of the announcement from his daughter who says “I am Gay” and how his understanding of the GLBT community grew after that announcement and reading of “the book”, called: Is the Homosexual My Neighbor? A Positive Christian Response.
Alan’s book “The Walk” asks – If everything you now believe to be true was a lie – when would you want to know? When it comes to some of the most impassioned, hotly-debated and divisive issues of our day, when was the last time you honestly questioned yourself, as to why you believe what you say you believe? Have you ever? This takes great courage! However, you must – if you are to discover your life purpose – what you were uniquely created for! The Walk® is both a simulated guided tour and a personal journey, providing at designated “rest stops,” opportunities for quiet introspection and courageous self-questioning.
