Honoring our veterans through film

The Ohio Liberty Film Festival will be running November 11 through November 13, showing films that celebrate freedom and liberty. “The underlying idea is that man’s great achievements, whether artistic, scientific or intellectual, have come about through the exercise of freedom and opportunity,” said Beavercreek resident and Dayton business owner Jay Tieber, creator of the event. “We have selected films that portray overcoming hardship and oppression, and attaining personal achievement, whether the achievement is measured in material or spiritual terms.” The films selected also portray the negative effects of the suppression of freedom. This year, Hollywood films being shown include We Were Soldiers, The Great Dictator, As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me, Good Morning Vietnam and Patton. Tieber said he specifically wants to honor veterans with this film festival and highlight their strength and courage. All film showings are free, thanks to sponsors such as Operation Welcome Home. Films will be shown at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, the Neon movie theater downtown and Miami Valley Research Park. Visit www.ohiolibertyfilmfestival.com for more information, including dates, times and locations. The Dublin Pub at 300 Wayne Ave. in Dayton also has programs listing all venues and events.
