ABOUT THE FILM
Age of Champions is the award-winning documentary following five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. You’ll meet a 100 year-old tennis champion, 86 year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they discover the power of the human spirit and triumph over the limitations of age.
This year, we're launching a national "Host a Screening" campaign to bring the film to communities across the country. We've created the Age of Champions Screening Kit to give organizations an easy-to-use tool to share the film with their communities and promote the message of lifelong health and wellness. The Screening Kit includes the DVD, discussion guide, active aging bracelets, postcards, and a full-size poster.
More than 700 senior, health, and fitness organizations have already signed up to host screenings in their local communities. Here’s the kind of impact your members can expect:
Complement Your Programs The Mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico is hosting a community-wide event to raise awareness about the city's health, recreation, and senior services.
Strengthen Your Message The International Council on Active Aging is launching a screening campaign in more than 200 cities to promote a positive message about getting older.
PRESENT THE FILM AT YOUR CONFERENCE
The most effective way to offer this opportunity to your members is to present the film at your annual conference. The filmmakers have spoken at more than 25 conferences―ranging from 100 to 10,000 attendees―and have received an extremely passionate response. For example, after a 10-minute presentation at Leading Age, more than 150 local organizations signed up to host a screening of the film in their communities.
We offer a variety of presentation formats to fit your conference schedule. Our most common presentation lengths are 3 minutes, 10 minutes, 25 minutes, and 60 minutes for a keynote or plenary lunch. In addition to the general session presentation, many organizations have found it successful to show the full film as an education breakout session or evening social activity.
