Founder of Anthem Film Festival
Anthem began in 2011 as a small festival inside a conference room on the 26th Floor at Bally’s Hotel. Our goal was to provide a venue for filmmakers who care about individuality and libertarian ideals. Soon our films were screening to standing-room audiences in the comfortable Sin City Theater at Planet Hollywood or in the Celebrity Ballroom for our main events. In fact, nearly 1,500 viewers attended our screenings of “Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt,” and Dinesh D’Souza’s “America: Imagine a World without Her,” (2014) and 700 viewers for “Little Pink House” (2017) projected on three screens simultaneously in the Celebrity Ballroom. Enthusiastic Q & A lasted for nearly an hour after each of those events, with red carpet interviews before the screenings and autograph opportunities afterward.
