KITS Wins at Santa Fe Film Festival

This weekend, filmmakers and filmmakers
alike descended upon The Land of
Enchantment for the 2020 Santa Fe Film
Festival where the 2019 KITS Awards Best
Film winner “Burnt Feathers, Broken
Wings” was screened. Kids in the Spotlight
Executive Director, Tige Charity, and the
film’s director, actress Cady McClain were
on hand to receive the festival’s coveted
Social Justice Award.
“Burnt Feathers, Broken Wings” holds the
distinction of being the first documentary

created by Kids in the Spotlight student filmmakers. The film was the lead-in presentation to the much anticipated “Foster Boy,” a highly charged drama produced by NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal and starring veteran actor, Matthew Modine and Shane Paul McGhie.

“We celebrate our youth for telling their
stories, their way!” say Charity. “It’s more
than a movie, it’s a movement!”
Kids in the Spotlight extends its deepest
appreciation to the Santa Fe Film Festival
for the opportunity and recogniztion, and
to Cady McClain for being an amazing
advocate for KITS!
