The Stars Will Be Out…

The stars will be out at the Beloit International Film Festival and, if you don’t know them, there is a good chance your kids will. Joining the more than 140 filmmakers, producers and directors will be two of the stars of Snowmen, Bobby Coleman and Christian Martyn.

Coleman, 13, has the leading role in Snowmen plaSnowmenying Billy Kirkfield who is convinced that he has only weeks to live. Martyn, 10, plays Lucas Lamb, one of Billy’s misfit friends, determined to ensure that Billy will be remembered in the record books forever.

Film Times & Tickets Here.

Billy and his friends pursue immortalizing fame in a series of schemes and stunts that eventually threaten their very lives. Along this journey of self-discovery, the boys conquer neighborhood bullies, unite a community, and discover that the only lasting legacy is friendship.

The film is produced by Stephen McEveety and John Shepherd, both of whom will also be present. Diane Hendricks is one of the executive producers of the film. They will be available, along with the young actors, to answer questions following screenings on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Beloit Public Library, Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Bushel and Peck’s Local Market and tentatively on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at the Rotary River Center.
