WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - eTradeWire -- (West Palm Beach, FL – February 6, 2023) "Experience the Magic of Cinema" is the slogan of a major new cultural event: The Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Film Festival© Presented by MorseLife, which is currently screening unique 50+ world-class features, documentaries, and short films at seven local theaters through February 16.

As part of its original commitment to offer films that "foster dialogue and interaction among our attendees and supporters" while collaborating with "community partners (and) diverse populations," the Festival is offered 100 free tickets to senior citizens from through the Glades (Belle Glade, Pahokee, and South Bay) to the Florida Premiere of an award-winning documentary:



In 1960, Lowndes County, AL, was a rural, impoverished town with a vicious history of racist terrorism. Eighty percent Black with no Black voters, the county served as a launching pad for a movement that brought together men and women, Black and White, the quiet warriors, and the crusaders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), among others.

The screening will be Tuesday, February 7 at 4 pm at the Regal Royal Palm Beach at 1003-FL 7 in Royal Palm Beach 33411.

The organization Guardians of the Glades worked with the Parks & Recreation Departments at each municipality so that the seniors enrolled in their program could attend, as well as seniors from the local independent living facilities. Participants in a very active Foster Grandparents Program that works in the schools will also be attending.

"I'm just so happy that our living Legends, which is how I describe our  seniors, have this opportunity available to them, especially during Black History Month," says Tammy Jackson-Moore of Guardians of the Glades, expressing her appreciation to The Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Film Festival for its generosity. "If we can keep our Legends engaged, we can accomplish a lot in the local community, and it allows them to an opportunity to get out and continue to live a healthy life."
