A coalition of Columbus cultural institutions will join forces to host the new “National Veterans Film Festival,” September 11-13, 2020. The three-day event seeks to connect Americans through Veterans’ voices and stories by celebrating the contributions and resiliency of our nation’s Veterans.
“There is so much more that unites Americans than divides us,” said Lt. General Michael Ferriter, U.S. Army (retired), President and CEO of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. “By screening great films made by Veterans or that tell stories about Veterans, this festival can address the human experience of Veterans and inspire a dialogue about what it means to serve our nation and commit to something larger than yourself.”
The festival is a partnership of some of Columbus’ leading arts and culture organizations – the National Veterans Memorial and Museum, WOSU Public Media, Gateway Film Center, the VA Central Ohio Health Care System (Columbus VA), and the Barnett Center at The Ohio State University.
