Trail Magic- Winner Best Local Documentary

7 Oct

The Chagrin Falls Documentary Film Festival provided the team from “Trail Magic” with IMG_2258a magical night at their Awards Ceremony. The festival is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary. The founder and director of the festival, Mary Ann Ponce, inspired by her son David, who passed away from cancer, endeavored to honor his memory and legacy with a wonderful festival. Friends and neighbors have worked together over the 10 years to make the festival one of the top 50 small film festivals in the world!

We showed the film at Federated Church to nearly 200 people along with “Against the Wall” featuring Kevin Foster. After the film we did a Q&A. Later that evening we attended the festivals award ceremony. Screen writer Kelly Boyer-Sagert, Producer Bette Lou Higgins, and Director Peter Huston were in attendance.IMG_1155

This film could not have been made with out the creative team of Peggy Foley, producer and editor, Directors of Photography Bruce Lundeen and Tom Whaley. A special thanks to our presenting sponsors Buckeye Trail Association and Watterson Associates.

This process spanned nearly 10 years, but is testament to the “evergreen” content of “Trail Magic, the Grandma Gatewood Story”.

Thanks to Ohio History Connection and all our project supporters for helping us make this film.
