Film tells tale of young girl’s quest to find Bigfoot
In the film, Sophie, a volunteer with the fictional Wish Kingdom Foundation, meets Roxie, a young girl with a life-threatening medical condition and the impossible wish to meet Bigfoot, according to the release. With time growing short, Sophie works to help grant Roxie’s wish.
Dunbar penned the book in 2015 as a fundraiser to help the Make-a-Wish Foundation . He later wrote a screenplay version. As was the case with his novel, proceeds from the film also benefit Make-a-Wish, the release states.
Directed by Don Swanson, the film was made with volunteer actors on a budget of $25,000 throughout Armstrong and Indiana counties.
Cost for the Oct. 19 showing is $10, with half of the proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish.
Reservations are required by Oct. 18.
