“The Red Shoes,” a short musical, was filmed entirely in Rehoboth and surrounding areas with local talent. Karen, a young orphan with a wild imagination, strikes creative gold in her new trial home, the Foster Mother Mansion. Karen behaves well in this lifestyle of plenty - until she discovers a pair of red dancing shoes. Unable to bottle up her excitement for them, she must dance. But will Karen’s imagination carry her to trouble, or to paradise? This short film praises obedience - to one’s own heart.
“The Dream Share Project” addresses the question, "What does it take to make your dream come true?" Delaware documentarians Chip Hiden and Alexis Irvin traveled the country finding answers from those who have turned aspirations into reality.
The audience will hear from an Olympic skier, one of the original Latin Kings of Comedy, a slam poet, a "Project Runway" fashion designer, the CEO of a sustainable flip-flop company, a beer maker, the producer of "Austin City Limits" and many more.
Their wise and surprising comments cover many topics including discovering one’s passion, committing to goals, dealing with setbacks and redefining success for the millennial generation.
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is funded, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
