‘Invisible War,’ ‘Butter’ to screen at conventions

Impact Arts & Film Fund holds film fests at GOP, Democratic events

The Impact Arts & Film Fund will again hold film festivals during the Republican and Democratic conventions, with a lineup of documentaries and other issue-oriented films designed to draw interest from politicos.

The films will screen at the Channelside Cinemas in Tampa, Fla. Aug. 27-30 and at the Mez & EpiCentre Theaters in Charlotte, N.C. Sept. 3-6. Among those expected are Jeff Bridges, narrator of “Hunger Hits Home,” about the problem of childhood hunger in America.

Other pics screening at both conventions: “How to Survive a Plague,” about ACT UP and other AIDS activists; “The Invisible War,” about rape and sexual assault in the military; “The House I Live In,” the story about America’s war on drugs; and “Electoral Dysfunction,” about voting laws and ballot confusion. In addition, “41,” about George W. Bush, will screen during the RNC, and “Ethel,” a portrait of Ethel Kennedy, will screen at the DNC.

Also expected to screen is “Butter,” the Weinstein Co. comedy about competitive butter sculpting in Iowa, with similarities to the state’s caucuses.

The Impact Arts and Film Fund, co-founded by Jody Arlington, Kimball Stroud and Jamie Shor, launched at 2008 conventions.
