CANCELED: Marching Forward Film Screening

Saturday, April 18, 2020 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
This event has been canceled. Call or email the event's contact listed below for more information.

This film, born out of a UCF honors public history and documentary class, details the history of two local high school band directors—one black, one white—inspired by music to cross color lines in the deep south and work together for the sake of their students.

This courageous cooperation between Chief Jim Wilson at Jones High School and Del Kieffner at Edgewater High School resulted in the experience of a lifetime for Orlando’s black and white students at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Since its release in early 2019, the film has screened in 14 festivals from Florida to Los Angeles. It won the prestigious “Best of Show – Long Form Documentary” at the Festival of Media Arts in Las Vegas, held by the Broadcast Educators Association. A panel discussion will follow the screening.
