“Here is this young Senegalist guy--36 years old, and this lady from California. 15 years later, this lady Jeanne Meyers [Director of the MY HERO Project] saved the life of my son.”
- Cheikh Darou Seck.
“What I get the most out of it [MY HERO], is a sense of hope when I see as many activists working to make the world a better place as has been captured by the films that we see.”
- Brenda Goodman
““I think MY HERO [submissions] usually contains subjects, people in them in the films that share that optimistic view of the future and how an individual can transform their own lives, the lives of their community or the lives of their nation, or even the world.”
- Pablo Frasconi
We recognize in memorandum Nancy Poss Hatchl and Wendy Apple who both generously gave their time judging films for the MY HERO International Film Festival. They each shared joyous enthusiasm and support for MY HERO year after year.
