Posted by: Sherril Altstadt 2 weeks, 6 days ago

Dave Rivas' play, "Cartas desde el Muro" translated as, "Letters from the Wall," is an emotional, insightful and honest telling of the journey individuals have embarked upon to make their way north and cross into the United States.  The play is currently in its run here in Coronado and will close out its run in Chula Vista, at the Bay Front Charter School next weekend.  The playwright penned his heartfelt appreciation of the production in his letter to the co-directors, Kim Strassburger of the Coronado School of the Arts and Linda Libby, of the Bay Front Charter School.  He expressed his gratitude to all involved for bringing his words to life on stage.

Posted by: Coronado Arts 1 month ago

The Coronado Island Film Festival, which presents its third annual festival November 9-12, has openings on its Board of Directors, and seeks interested community members to fill a minimum of three, and possibly as many as five, seats. The board vacancies have resulted from the establishment of a separate Industry Advisory Board, in which three of the festival's founding board members have transitioned. They include Terry Curtin, marketing, franchise development and corporate communications consultant to the entertainment industry, who will chair the Advisory Board; Jim Gallagher, Head of Theatrical Marketing at Dream Works Animation SKG; and Ira Wohl, who won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1979 and teaches film at UCLA. Lisa Bruce, executive producer of "Darkest Hour," which opened this year's festival, has also joined the Industry Advisory Board, (Gary Oldman picked up this year's Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the film.)
