  • Screen­ing of the “The Way” THE WAY (direct­ed by Emilio Esteves) is a pow­er­ful and inspi­ra­tional sto­ry about fam­i­ly, friends and the chal­lenges we face while nav­i­gat­ing this ever-chang­ing and com­pli­cat­ed world. Mar­tin Sheen plays Tom, an iras­ci­ble Amer­i­can doc­tor who comes to France to deal with the trag­ic loss of his son (played by Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the his­tor­i­cal pil­grim­age “The Way of St. James” to hon­or his son’s desire to fin­ish the jour­ney. What Tom doesn’t plan on is the pro­found impact this trip will have on him. Through unex­pect­ed and often­times amus­ing expe­ri­ences along “The Way,” Tom dis­cov­ers the dif­fer­ence between “the life we live and the life we choose.”

HOW AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARDS WORK

Be sure to rate each film you see dur­ing the Fes­ti­val. Your rat­ings, com­bined with those of all atten­dees, will deter­mine the win­ner!

Your Audi­ence Choice Awards vot­ing card is the card­stock insert in your pro­gram.

After view­ing each film, rate it as 3 (loved it!), 2 (pret­ty good) or 1 (not my favorite). If you do not see a film, cir­cle N/A.

When you have seen your final film at the Fes­ti­val, turn in your vot­ing card as you leave; a bal­lot box is near the exit of each venue.
