"Finding Judy" Coming to Iowa City This Weekend

I learned of a film coming to Iowa City this weekend that looks to be a lot of fun.  It's called "FINDING JUDY" and it's going to be playing at the Landlocked Film Festival here in Iowa City.  Here is a description of the film:
What happens when a boy from Chicago looks inside himself and discovers he can sing and act just like the legendary Judy Garland?

A sweet, engaging look at how one young man's quirky talent helped him disarm high school bullies, flummox telemarketers and propel himself from YouTube obscurity all the way to tinsel town.
Check out the following video and learn why director Gary Riotto decided to make "FINDING JUDY":


"FINDING JUDY" will be playing on Friday, August 26th, at the hotelVetro Ballroom (2nd floor conference area) at 3:30 PM at part of the Documentary Short Program.  It will play again on Sunday, August 28th, at the Iowa City Library (Room A) at 3:30 PM, where it is scheduled to open the Out for the Long Run Program.  The tickets are free, so it's definitely worth checking out!
