Film Event to Support United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Arizona and the Phoenix Film Foundation
Date:8/20/2009

PHOENIX, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- A special screening of Shooting Beauty, which won the Cox Audience Award at the 2009 Phoenix Film Festival, will take place on Thursday, September 17th at 7:00pm at the Harkins Scottsdale 101 Theatre. All proceeds from the event will benefit UCP of Central Arizona and the Phoenix Film Foundation, two non-profit organizations in Central Arizona. Tickets for the film screening are $12 and can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/77317 or by calling (602) 955-6444.

Shot over a period of ten years, this film is guaranteed to challenge audiences to rethink what they thought they knew about people with disabilities. For more information about the film and to watch the trailer, please visit the events section of UCP of Central Arizona's website at www.UCPofCentralAZ.org.

"We're very excited to be partnering with UCP of Central Arizona for this special screening of Shooting Beauty," states Jason Carney, Executive Director of the Phoenix Film Foundation. "The film was loved by audiences at the Phoenix Film Festival back in April and, when we considered doing another screening of the film, UCP was the perfect partner."

Dan Rossi, Executive Director of UCP of Central Arizona, states, "We are proud to partner with the Phoenix Film Foundation for the screening of Shooting Beauty. It is a great film that really captures the true meaning of UCP's tag line 'life without limits for people with disabilities.' It shares the message that people with disabilities are just like you and me; they have dreams, wants, desires, likes, and dislikes and want opportunities to play active and meaningful roles in their communities."

Annually, UCP of Central Arizona provides comprehensive programming for over 2,500 children and adults with various disabilities including cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, developmental delays, and learning disabilities.

The Phoenix Film Foundation is the largest non-profit film organization in the state of Arizona. With the Phoenix Film Festival, IFP-Phoenix, Arizona Student Film Festival, International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival, and the Phoenix Film Society, the opportunities to be part of film are limitless all year long.
