Film Festival Set for Veterans Day Weekend: The City of Coronado is a sponsor of the second annual Coronado Island Film Festival opening Veterans Day Weekend, November 9-12.  “Darkest Hour,” will open the festival on Thursday, November 9. The inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II. Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany or fighting for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. The film is produced by Coronado’s own Lisa Bruce, “Darkest Hour” is a Focus Features Release. A special Veterans Day program will highlight artist Steve Maloney’s sculpture “Take Me Home Huey,” and the screening of the documentary about Maloney’s work on Saturday of the festival. The complete film festival schedule and list of screenings will be available soon at www.coronadofilmfestival.com. Passes may be purchased online through Eventbrite.
