Supporters of Flicks4Change gathered at the Australian Embassy Aug. 6 for a reception and premier of the Cannes Festival documentary film, “Wish Man.” The film strikes many humanitarian chords, as it depicts the true-life story of Frank Shankwitz who co-founded the Make-a-Wish Foundation — which gives children with terminal disease a special wish. Flicks4Change co-founders Andrew Steele and James Hawthorn spoke about the power of bringing good acts of kindness to the front stage of film.
