Annual EQUUS Film Festival

Annual EQUUS Film Festival

January 23, 2019 - January 23, 2019

Arcada Theater
105 E. Main Street
St. Charles, IL 60174

The Arcada Theatre will again host the EQUUS Film Festival, an annual award event highlighting and rewarding the diverse and creative efforts of those in indie film, music, and advertising, who artistically pay homage to the horse through media. EQUUS travels with the WINNIE Award winners and other films around the country and in the UK throughout the year. This event’s feature film will be “A Pony and His Boy: The Story of Berry & Josh”. This fantastic film, directed by Julianne Neal, shows the power of a pony and the effect that he has had on one small boy. Josh, a young boy with Down Syndrome, had been afraid of animals, especially horses, until one summer afternoon when walking in the pasture full of horses with his mom and Lisa he was asked “Do you want to ride?” When he surprisingly said yes, they caught him off-guard, swept him up and placed him on Berry. The relationship that started between Berry and Josh that day has been life-changing, not only for Josh, but for everyone who loves him. Filmed in Illinois, North and South Carolina, plus featuring both heartfelt testimonials and informative interviews, “A Pony and His Boy” is a testament to the power of the horse. WINNIE Award winner in New York City! *There will be a 30 minute meet and greet before the films begin were you will be able to meet the stars of the film and the filmmaker. Show Time: 6pm
