“Act of Love” Screens Tonight At Newport Beach Festival
DMP’s recent documentary, “An Act Of Love” screens tonight (April 27, 2016), with an encore screening tomorrow night at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Following the screening will be a Q&A with director Scott Sheppard and Rev. Frank Schaefer.
In 2013, after officiating a same sex wedding for his son, a Pennsylvanian Methodist man finds himself at a crossroads between his love for his homosexual son and his faith as a Reverend. After being prosecuted for his actions against the church and defrocked as a minister, the reverend sets off on a nationwide mission hoping to initiate progress and tolerance in the Methodist community.
Tickets and more information about the screening can be found at the Newport Beach Festival’s website.
