Voting Open for Ecolab People’s Choice Award in Brookdale’s 2nd Annual Celebrate Aging Film Festival
NASHVILLE, TN–Voting is open to the public through Sept. 30 to determine the winner of the Ecolab People’s Choice Award for the second annual Celebrate Aging Film Festival, which will be held Oct. 3, 2018, at the historic Franklin Theatre in Franklin, TN. All nine of the nominated films can be viewed at the Ecolab People’s Choice Award homepage, where visitors may cast votes for their favorite film.
Each of the nominated films was created by residents and associates at Brookdale Senior Living communities using only iPads. More than 60 films were submitted to the festival. A panel narrowed the list down to nine films in the following categories: Best Picture, Best Writing, Best Acting, Best Technical Design, and the Courage Award, which highlights the true stories of courageous older adults who are living life to the fullest.
Brookdale associates in Chicago, Milwaukee and Nashville viewed all nominated films and cast votes to decide the winners in each category. All nine films are eligible to win the Ecolab People’s Choice Award. Last year more than 12,700 votes were cast.
Residents from the nine communities with nominated films, accompanied by a Brookdale associate, will travel across the country to attend the festival. These “movie stars” will receive the celebrity treatment including a red carpet walk with photographs and a special screening and awards show.
Brookdale’s Celebrate Aging Film Festival was created to help change the perception of aging and gives residents and associates the opportunity to work together to develop a compelling story. Ecolab, Brookdale’s trusted partner in providing clean, safe and healthy environments for its residents, generously sponsors the Celebrate Aging Film Festival.
