Looking for something to do on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day? Check out the Sprout Film Festival 2018 on Monday, Jan. 15 at the Wildhorse Cineplex.
Sponsored by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation, the FREE film festival is from 1-2:30 p.m.. The eight films to be shown all involve a person who is intellectually or developmentally disabled.
According to Lon Thornburg, Transition Network Facilitator at the InterMountain Education Service District, the films offer a variety of comedy, drama and inspiration. “There is something for everyone to enjoy in this line-up of dynamic films,” Thornburg said. The event also includes guest speakers, local employers and employees who have found employment opportunities through Umatilla County and Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation.
The films are American and Australian. Film festival organizers would like to thank Wildhorse Cineplex for hosting the event.
