The Buffalo Premiere of the highly acclaimed feature film Because of Gracia stars Moriah Peters and Chris Massoglia featuring Ben Davies and John Schneider, the former Dukes of Hazzard teen idol. At age 16, Moriah Peters tried out for American Idol and was mocked by the panel of judges for her purity lifestyle. Now, she has a lead in a faith-based film. John Schneider, who has appeared in several Christian-themed films of late, plays the school principal.
Screening at the film festival is the TV movie Heritage Falls starring David Keith, who plays Charlie Fitzpatrick, the "winningest" high school basketball coach in Georgia history. While many of his players think of him as a father, he does not have a good relationship with his own “bookworm” son - Evan. So Charlie decides that the best way to connect and bond is to take his son and grandson to a rustic mountain cabin for an unforgettable weekend retreat.
Unbridled, starring Tea Mckay and Jenn Gotzon features appearances by Eric Roberts and T.C. Stallings. Inspired by a healing ranch for troubled girls in North Carolina, Unbridled is a story that exposes the atrocities of abuse, neglect, and sex trafficking and the healing and redemption experienced by girls and horses who have suffered the same types of abuse.
