Story by Tessie Wilmot

This is our latest short film. This film, starring Lilian Brooks, LaKyle Thomas, Charles McIntosh and Jay Ward, explores self esteem and true love. The sky is the limit for Zoe, a beautiful and talented photographer, but her low self esteem and her need for financial support from men is holding her back from prosperity, happiness and true love. After the only man in her life, who cares about her, forces her to take a good look at herself and recognize her many good qualities, Zoe is left to do some soul searching.

 

 

Secured Tightly © 2013

Craftfully written by Tessie Wilmot, is a story about three separate couples and how outside forces can wreak havoc on a relationship.

Derrick (Jamey Clay-Brown) and Gabby (Tessie Wilmot) are a successful and accomplished interracial couple, determined to beat the odds despite many people’s objections to their union. But when an old flame returns in Gabby’s life, their confidence and commitment are tested. Breadwinner, Sean (Courtney Nichole), has her life turned upside down when she loses her job due to a customer’s discomfort with her sexual orientation. As she tries to get back on her feet, she must work hard to maintain the confidence her supportive girlfriend, Latoya (Meke Rae), has in her. Jason (Jason “Lumberjack” Johnson) is a US service-member and an             all-American country boy who falls head-over-heels for Emily, (Amber Erwin) a free-spirited young artist. But after a year long deployment overseas, a lot has changed and they quickly learn that getting back to where they were a year ago won’t be easy.

The Fair Winds Veterans Film Festival is dedicated to putting a spotlight on films produced, directed, written, edited, or the star and or supporting role played by a veteran. Our mission is to have more veterans and civilians working together and building relationships. 

Army/Air Force veteran, Albert Roberts, won the Best Film Award at the First Annual Film Festival. 

We greatly appreciate our sponsors of our first annual film festival: Travel Far Productions, Art of Kip Wilmot, Expected End Entertainment, Words in Motion, and Leary Storyteller.

Fair Winds Film Festival is a platform where military veterans can showcase their creativity of film and storytelling to audiences around the country. We motivate veterans, military members, and civilians to work together, have a better understanding of diverse persons, motivate each other, learn from each other, and be able to network with multiple people throughout the industry. Film, storytelling, and acting is a few of the art channels where veterans can express creativity. Being able to express creativity and work with a diverse group of people helps veterans deal with social and mental issues they may be experiencing. It’s also a bridge for veterans and civilians to become closer. 

The Fair Winds Veterans Film Festival presents an annual festival program: feature films and short films, film and TV previews, special screenings, industry events, networking sessions, discussion panels and other events. We plan to host events in a different location each year, being able to travel to multiple locations and give each city an opportunity for economic growth.

The founders of the film festival are a military married couple, who encourages veterans to pursue their dreams while living an adventure.
