The Villages honors veterans through films

in The Villages News & Events


THE VILLAGES, Fla. – The Villages is presenting the Military Film Festival, a four-day event to share stories about veterans,  for the first time.

“The Villages is such a veteran-rich community, there are over 35,000 veterans that call The Villages home at one point or another,” Marie Bogdonoff, founder and CEO of Villagers for Veterans, said.

The idea is for the event to serve as a way to educate the public about issues veterans face.

“There’s no better way to educate people than to show it through film,” Bogdonoff said.

The film festival is taking place at the Villages Old Mill Playhouse.
