GreasePaint has been officially selected for the 5th Annual Chagrin Documentary Film Festival, which will held October 8th-12th, 2014. The film’s Ohio festival premiere will be happening the spectacular city of Chagrin Falls. Director Daniel Espeut, the film’s main star Joey Thurmond and one of the film’s interviewees, Ohio-based clown Jeff Potts, will be in attendance. “I was so inspired by the story behind this festival,” says Espeut. The Chagrin Documentary Film Festival is dedicated to David Ponce, a Chagrin Falls High School Alumnus and filmmaker who was inspired to tell the story of Sparrow Village, an aids orphanage in Johannesburg, South Africa in a documentary entitled The Lost Sparrows of Roodepoort. David was battling leukemia and succumbed in 2006 before his film could be completed. With the help of his friend Brock Carter and Chapman University/Dodge College of Film Assistant Dean Michael Kowalski, The Lost Sparrows of Roodepoort was completed and has become an award winning documentary. Ponce’s production company, Fevered Dreams Productions, has become a nonprofit organization dedicated to allowing talented filmmakers to tell their unique stories. GreasePaint will be screened Thursday, October 9th at 5:15 pm at South Franklin Circle located at 16575 South Franklin Street, Chagrin Falls, Ohio 44022 and Saturday, October 11th at 3:15 pm at Chagrin Falls Township Hall located at 87 North Main Street, Chagrin Falls, Ohio 44022.
