Shooting Beauty was launched as an official 'ACT' to all U.S. chapters of Best Buddies International and has already become one of it's "most engaging acts because of it's ability to bring understanding, awareness and acceptance to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities." In becoming an official ACT, Best Buddies encourages it's chapters to use Shooting Beauty as a tool to further their mission.
"Shooting Beauty is a must see for everyone. This film leads the audience on a journey that begins with viewing people in wheelchairs to seeing photographers who laugh and cry with friends, live independently, fall in and out of love while perfecting their passion for showing their world through the lens of a camera."
~ Anthony Shriver, Founder and Chairman, Best Buddies International

They received a standing ovation from the 400+ students and staff after the Shooting Beauty screening and Q&A. Courtney's live intro to the film was televised throughout the classrooms (a first for us!). Thanks to the incredible staff and student leaders at St. Sebastian's for making our event such a success!
