Great Turnout at Venture Outdoors Screening Event

We had a great crowd and a wonderful time at the Venture Outdoors screening of The Power of One Voice last night. Free beer provided by Victory for Venture Outdoors members, not to mention yummy popcorn with REAL butter (thanks to the super indie and classy Hollywood Theater in Dormont). The film was followed by a lengthy Q&A session with film’s executive producer, Patricia DeMarco, and me (Mark Dixon, director/producer).
