Whats that sound? Do I hear rumblings of a new film? Stay tuned!

The Asheville International Children’s Film Festival wraps things up with the exclusive engagement of Story Point Media’s film Magic in the Forest at Posana Café in Asheville.  The first movie of its kind, the locally produced Magic in the Forest is a green fable created in partnership with the U.S. Department of Forestry and the Blue Ridge Natural Heritage Area and filmed on location in the Pisgah Forest.  A thought-provoking film that encourages all ages to appreciate the complexity and diversity of the natural world outside their door, it has been nominated for “best animated short” at the Orlando Film Festival and has won an Accolade Award of Excellence for its original music score.

The film tracks the efforts of a mall rat on a dreaded class trip to the woods where she’s swept away into a magical and mystifying primeval forest. Her only way out is to save a sacred seed from a desolate and deformed forest, a rampaging and roaring fire and the most evil tree ever mutated on this earth.  Will she make it? Will the forest make it? Will the planet make it? It all depends on her.

The movie airs at 12:30 and again at 3 PM on Sunday, November 14 with a horticultural adventure at 2 PM.  The film’s star, Victory Van Tuyl will be on hand to guide children on a journey as they plant “red emperor” tulip bulbs donated by the Biltmore Estate in association with the Netherland Bulb Company around the Vance Monument.   Students at Evergreen Community Charter School will assist in the planting, which is sponsored by the Pack Square Conservancy.

Seating is limited.  The movie and hors d’oeuvres are complimentary, but reservations must be made by November 10, 2010 contact us by email at louisa@storypointmedia.com.  Souvenir gift bags will be handed out to children and a drawing for a free copy of the Magic in the Forest DVD will be held at each show time.

Posana Café is located at 1 Biltmore Avenue in downtown Asheville, North Carolina.

“Magic in the Forest” is slated as the final film selection of the Asheville International Children’s Film Festival airing Sunday, November 14th at Posana Cafe, 1 Biltmore Avenue in Downtown Asheville.
