In just 5 hours, The Donut Dollies will begin screening at the GI Film Festival San Diego. As you may know, we won our first award for Best Documentary Feature last year at the GI Film Fest, which was quite an honor and we are excited to be asked to screen our film for them again this year.
The screening of our film begins today, Friday, October 2nd at 7:00 PM PDT and immediately following the livestream of our film will be a Q&A session starting at 8:29 PM PDT. We’re honored to have Donut Dollies Sharon (Vander Van) Cummings (first photo) and Sandi Rhoten (second photo) join us as our special guests. Sharon served in Vietnam from 1966-67 at Cam Ranh Bay Army, then with Long Binh II Field Forces and then the 25th Division in Cu Chi. Sandi served in Vietnam from 1969-70 at Tuy Hoa, Cam Ranh and Qui Nhon.
Representing The Donut Dollies Documentary team will be Jess Hill (Producer – third photo) and Jim Gardner (Co-producer and Music supervisor – fourth photo). The moderator of the Q&A will be John Decker, the Director of Programming for KPBS.
