The filmmakers and stars of the movie “Little Savages” that is wrapping up filming in the Culver area will be partnering with local clergy to hold a panel discussion focused on the topic of “Faith, Film and Contemporary Life.” The panel will be held today beginning at 11 a.m. ET at the west pavilion in Culver’s town park.
Stars of the film include several well-known Disney stars, including Kenton Duty and Katherine McNamara. The film, which is being produced by Bearfuit Films, cents around the charming lake town of Culver where a boy genius and his sister race against bullies to find a treasure hidden by an eccentric philanthropist.
The heads at Bearfruit Films have stated that they hope to “bring redemptive stories to life” in their movies, and the discussion, to which the public is invited, is intended to explore the confluence of faith and art, most specifically that in film, and how those matters have influenced Bearfruit Films. Local clergy and church representatives will participate, weighing in their opinions alongside Bearfruit Films representatives and actors.
Discussion will also include future endeavors for the filmmakers and will be followed by a community autograph signing party from noon to 1 p.m.
