Broward's Centennial Celebration Film Premiere

Fundholder Makes Documentary Happen

  L-R: Neil Goldberg, James B. LaBate, Sheri Brown, Earl Bosworth, Edward Hashek

Broward 100’s year-long documentary film premiered to a packed audience as a Fort Lauderdale Film Festival selection. "The Making of WE…The Passion & Rhythm of the the People” was created by Broadway Director and Cirque Dreams founder, Neil Goldberg.
Irwin-Levenstein_1b8fda156c_o.jpgThe film was supported by Community Foundation of Broward's Legacy Society and Professional Advisors Council (PAC) member James LaBate and the Judith Linnell Foundation.  The film gave audience a behind-the-scenes look at the 2015 Broadway-style show "WE... The Passion & Rhythm of the People." Thousands of local talent from across Broward auditioned for a coveted role in the show that capped off Broward's year-long centennial celebration, Broward 100 - Celebrating the Art of Community

Foundation Board members Edward Hashek and Anne Joyner, Fundholder John Bochak, and VP of Grants and Initiatives Sheri Brown joined LaBate to celebrate the documentary's intimate premiere at Savor Cinema in December. View event photos*

Last fall, Goldberg gave Community Foundation Fundholders and guests a "WE..." sneak peek before the centennial performance during a Food for Thought Experience at his studio in Pompano Beach.

Broward Cultural Division received a $400,000 Art of Community grant in January 2014 and incorporated the arts in Broward's centennial celebration. Art of Community is one of the Foundation's ten Issues that Matter where we work with grantees to nurture civic engagement by bringing Broward's diverse 1.8 million residents together through the arts.
