Neuro Film Festival and Feb 1st Update

American Academy of Neurology Foundation has created the neuro film festival to raise awareness of brain disorders. One in six people are affected by a neurologic disorder. In order to help people realize why more research is needed to find cures for brain disorders, the Neuro Film Festival was started.

The Foundation needs help getting the information out by showing others why more brain research is needed to find cures. And this is the third year of the Neuro film festival. Here is my entry for the 2012 Neuro Film Festival.

The call for entries for the 2012 Film Festival has formally closed. You can check out the films entered here: Neuro Film Festival. Click on the “Watch Video Entries” where you’ll see “2012 Neuro Film Festival Entries. Click again and you can see all 99 entries. I’m number 68. As you watch the movies you’ll hear stories about why more research is needed.

Take a look at the movies then check back on Tuesday February 7, 2012 when you’ll be able to vote for your favorite entry to the 2012 Neuro Film Festival. Winners will be announced the evening of April 22, 2012, at the Neuro Film Festival in New Orleans.

I’m very thankful that my young friends, Palmer High School Seniors, Grace Bohman and Kara Whisler who helped me create this movie. As I told them, everyone, no matter what their circumstances are, needs to have a movie made about them. I know we all have wonderful traits and listening to people record them is a blessing, a great esteem booster!

Take a few minutes and look at the movies that were created for the neuro film festival then visit it again on February 7th and vote for your favorite!
