From staff reports
A new category called the Duty & Honor Film Collection has been added to the 15th Annual Beaufort International Film Festival, scheduled for Feb. 16-21, 2021.
This new category will stand alone from the other categories – feature films, short films, documentaries (feature length and short), animated films, student films, and screenplays – in that it will consist of films that are 40 minutes or shorter and reflect positively on the United States military, law enforcement, fire and rescue personnel and other first responders and their families.
“We felt that the time was right to stand up for our valiant public servants who put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve the people of our country,” President/CEO of the Beaufort Film Society Ron Tucker said in a release. “There are too many good stories that are not being told. This is a plea to filmmakers to tell those stories in a positive way.”
Tucker himself is a retired U.S. Marine.
