A New Movement by New York Times bestselling author and award-winning filmmaker James Twyman seeks to put one million+ signatures on the desks of Hollywood film decision-makers.
So you’ve had enough! You’re 50+ and you’re fed up with violent, too intense, crude, blockbuster or youth-driven films that ignore your craving for uplifting, inspirational, real life or romantic movies that move you or fill your heart with love and joy, and whose protagonists are in your age group.
Now’s your chance to tell Hollywood how you feel! Award-winning filmmaker James Twyman is launching a movement under the banner of The Senior Cinema Circle to gather one million or more signatures to place on the desk of Hollywood’s decision makers demanding movies that appeal to the Baby Boomer and esteemed elder set. "Seniors are usually ignored by the Hollywood system," says James Twyman, the president of The Senior Cinema Circle and producer/co-writer of the upcoming film Redwood Highway.
"An occasional film focused on older adults comes out of the UK now and then, like The Exotic Marigold Hotel or Quartet, and even France with last year's Amour.
But the American film industry hasn't caught up, and doesn't seem to want to." Hollywood is overlooking a source of financial gold and customer loyalty. Seniors have more time on their hands and they are a market that is simply waiting to explode. Give them what they want and they will come!”
It's good to talk.
