Silver Springs International Film FestivalSSIF Logo

Our film “Journey to FAR” has been selected!

When we safely moved 138 animals in 4 days and made it a Disaster Response training opportunity, our friends Mark & Jackie Barrett filmed the whole process and made a movie for us.

The film has been entered in the Silver Springs International Film Festival and will be competing against other fantastic films April 3-6, 2014.

Please join us at the historic Marion Theater (50 S Magnolia Ave) in downtown Ocala to see the screening of our film as well as a few other entries at 2:00pm on Friday, April 4, 2014– and you can meet us to discuss it in person!

We recommend purchasing tickets in advance, as seating is limited.
