About the Presentation

The filmmaker's keynote presentation weaves together thought-provoking ideas about aging and personal reflections on making the film. As young men in their late 20s, they offer a unique perspective on senior adults and how we can honor the older generation. The broader themes of their presentation can include:

  • Why they made the film and how it changed their perspective on older adults
  • How intergenerational relationships are a huge key to emotional, physical, and spiritual health
  • How we can all challenge ourselves to be active in our communities through the arts


Janey Makes a Play is a proven tool to inspire audiences, generate media coverage, and engage with potential sales prospects. Senior living communities often organize their screening for residents, send out direct mail invitations to prospects, and open their event to the public.
