In late 2013, our Show Host, Filippo Voltaggio, released a list on behalf of Life Changes Network or the Top Ten Independent Films of 2013 that could Change the World… and Why! The list became very popular and was well received and was liked and shared on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus by thousands. One remark of note was Sharon Stone, after the list had been forwarded to her by the director of one of the films on the list, responded with a personal email back in favor, saying “Congratulations, now THAT means something!”
In the heals of the 2014 Oscars, on Sunday, March 2nd, 2014, just the day before, it seemed a good idea to not only revisit the list but to speak about the positive aspects of some of the Oscar Nominated and Winning Films of 2014. So, in our first ever planned, two-hour special show, Producers Dorothy Donahue and Mark Laisure interviewed Filippo Voltaggio on his vision for the first ever Top Ten List for Life Changes Network. In the second hour, we were joined by Actress Erica Cox for a conversation our first significant on-air conversation about the films, in that words of Sharon Stone, that means something, as far as we are concerned.
See List below:
