Last night, the Naples International Film Festival presented director, Matthew Leutwyler, the Audience Award for “The River Why”!
Many thanks to the Naples audience and to NIFF. This is terrific!

The filmmakers of “The River Why” donated 25 tickets to veterans from Walter Reed Hospital who are participating in Project Healing Waters so they could see the film when it screens at the Alexandria Film Festival (Virginia), November 6 at 7 pm. Project Healing Waters is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans through fly fishing and fly tying education and outings.
