  • Please join members of SJ Screenwriters and local filmmakers for a film mixer and fundraiser for "A Call To Arms, Molly- Ready, Set, Shoot" on Wednesday August 9th at 5pm at Fort Mifflin.

    BUY YOUR TICKET NOW! 

    Tarot readings, ghost tours, beer garden, silent auction ($200 gift certificate Molly Pitcher Inn, Pat's Steaks, Philly Fun, Yards Brewery, P F Chang & More) body painting, caricatures, visuals & teasers, photos, food, music & cocktails. Come out to meet the production crew, network and explore Fort Mifflin! Huzzah!

    The cannon is loaded and waiting for anyone brave enough to light the fuse!

    Former Pa. Gov. Ed Rendell will lead the charge by taking the first shot on June 22, 2017, at Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia. Actors, dignitaries and guests will also get the chance to fire-off a shot from the cannon as Live Patriots mingle with guests in the Colonial Beer Garden.

    It takes a lot of actors, a plethora of soldiers, and even more beer to make a movie. Last summer, actors and reenactors did their part in creating the sizzle reel for Molly, which will be shown at Fort Mifflin on June 22. Now it’s time for the rest of us to do our part and eat, drink and be merry. And, of course, in every war there’s a bit of luck involved so we’re bringing along raffle and silent auction items. Why not take a chance on winning a $200 gift certificate to the Molly Pitcher Inn in New Jersey, or a signed baseball by a Philadelphia Phillies player?

    Like the Patriot army, we need you to help Molly’s story get made by drinking, eating, buying a raffle ticket, penning your name on a silent auction item, or by exploring the fort (and perhaps meeting a ghost in one of fort’s hidden nooks where visitors have seen the apparitions).http://TheMollyFilm.com

    The production team will be on hand to talk about the film, which highlights a woman’s patriotic rebellion during the nation’s fight for independence. “I filled in the blanks with dramatic action and adventure based on what I researched about Molly Pitcher and made her the kind of woman I think she was - a bad-ass who wouldn’t take no for an answer at a time when women were seen but seldom heard,” says writer and producer Brigette ReDavid.

    Director Jon Barden, Director of Photography Myron Parran, Line Producer Brian David Cange and Asst. Producer Karin Knebl have worked to develop the feature film over the past year. And now they are ready to lift a mug of ale and talk about their role on the production. The Fort opens at 4 p.m. for exploration! The event is 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 for regular guests and includes food and a signature cocktail; $125 for VIP guests and includes dinner, drinks, a commemorative photo and gift, and a family membership for a year to Fort Mifflin.
