Brookdale Canyon Lakes wins Best Acting award at "Celebrate Aging Film Festival"
KENNEWICK, Wash. —
There's no age limit when it comes to talent. One prime example is the group of people at Brookdale Canyon Lakes senior living center that just won an acting award.
The award is from the inaugural "Celebrate Aging Film Festival,” which invited residents from all the Brookdale senior living communities to put together a short film.
About 14 people worked on the film "Hope,” which follows a woman worried about moving into Brookdale.
The Canyon Lakes cast says winning the award has brought them recognition, but it's also given them something more.
"We're aging and we want to celebrate it and so I think it was great to for our growth and stepping outside our comfort area to do something like this,” says project leader Ginger Vetrano.
"This is not just a place to go wither away. We do lots of fun things,” adds cast member Myrlen McKinnon. Her friend and lead actress Joyce Green says, “Maybe it will encourage others our age to get out there and do things."
