Washington DC’s GI Film Festival

As we celebrate this Memorial Day holiday we thought we would share some highlights from previous years coverage of the  G.I. Film Festival in Washington, D.C.  The GI Film Festival is the first film festival in the nation to exclusively celebrate the successes and sacrifices of the service member through the medium of film.

World Footprints  is proud to pay tribute to our nation’s heroes–our men and women in uniform, and the Hollywood patriots who support them.  From the red carpet of past G.I. Film Festivals  we share our conversations with three award-winning actors: Gary Sinise, William Devane and Lou Diamond Phillips.  We also introduce award-winning filmmaker Rodney Ray and budding filmmaker Chris Loverro.    Then we’ll chat with actor Sean Kanan who is best known for his role as Deacon Sharpe on the popular CBS daytime shows The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. Sean joins us to talk about his journey from the mid-west to Hollywood and his travels with the USO.
