About our Main Feature: Rising Stars
USA / Musical Feature / English / 90 min / Ages 8+
A family musical with heart, Rising Stars explores the sacrifices that come with fame in reality television-obsessed culture. Challenged with creating songs and music videos, three musical acts find more than their futures on the line when the competition gets fierce and their lives are caught on tape broadcast to the nation. Egos clash and worlds collide as these teens find how far they will go to win the coveted prize and achieve stardom.
Meet the Filmmakers! We are pleased to have several guests involved in the film coming to the screening to participate in a Q&A session after the screening. It's a rare opportunity to find out first-hand what it takes to make a movie!
Also being screened at the Closing Gala: Enamour
USA / Short / English / 11 min / Ages 8+
The pure confidence of childhood, that gives us the courage to believe in things that later seem to be impossible, is the subject of Justin Ho’s short film, which will be screened before Rising Stars at the Reel Fun Closing Gala
