Sumner Newscow report — There are still two showings of the Great American Wheat Harvest documentary film being shown at the Wellington Regent Theater as part of the Wheat Capital of the World’s 114th annual celebration of the Kansas Wheat Festival. The second and third showing is Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Independent filmmaker Conrad Weaver of ConjoStudios, LLC, from Emmitsburg, Md., will be available from 1 to 2 p.m., before the Sunday afternoon screening for a meet and greet with movie patrons and media interviews.
“We’re excited to be attending and to be a part of this annual event that honors the Kansas wheat farmers and harvesters,” Weaver says. “We spent a lot of our production hours here in Kansas and our fans are sure to recognize some familiar people and places.”
At the “Meet and Greet”, Weaver will be available to give updates and interviews about the film’s progress since it’s national premiere screening on National Ag Day on March 25 in Washington, D.C., at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. He reminds patrons and supporters that a portion of the proceeds for this film will go to help support Feed My Starving Children, a Christian 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
