Donate Life Hollywood Inaugurates Film Festival - June 13
Date:6/2/2009

donation and transplantation in a way that is dramatic; show viewers an accurate portrayal of the donation/transplantation process without perpetuating harmful myths; and leave viewers feeling inspired about organ donation. Film festival winners will be honored with cash prizes for the shorts and longer format films.

Among the honorees will be "Seven Pounds," released last year starring Will Smith and Rosario Dawson, for "Outstanding Portrayal of Organ and Tissue Donation in a Motion Picture." "Seven Pounds" is the first feature film to show the real-life pain for those waiting for a transplant and the profound joy of receiving the gift of life and sight.

Other film finalists include:

  • "Decision to Donate" - the story of one man's battle with chronic kidney disease and his friend's selfless decision to help by donating one of his kidneys. Produced and directed by the donor's son, this film chronicles this life-changing journey from the initial decision to donate, through the transplant and beyond, as the two men and their families share an intimate perspective of their very personal experience.
  • "Giving Life" - focuses on the story of Hollie Stanyon Fouts, who became an organ donor as a result of a fatal auto accident just one year after her sister was killed in an auto accident, and their parents' journey through grief and giving.
  • "The Wait" - a student documentary chronicling the lives of four young people who are waiting for, or who have received, a transplant. The film shows the graphic realities of life on the waiting list.
  • "Prometheus Bound: The Epidemic of Hepatitis C" - the real-life stories of people with Hepatitis C and the effects on the human body.

Eight television episodes will be honored:

  • Samantha Who? - "The Job" (ABC)
  • Brothers and Sisters -
