Sunday is never a day of rest at The Connecticut Film Festival when it’s time again take on the role as advocate for an important cause.

The Connecticut Film Festival has partnered with The Middlesex Hospital & Cancer Center on Closing Night along the producers of More To Live For - to present a unique opportunity for filmgoers and music lovers to See A Film, And Save A Life! Audience members will not only enjoy a fantastic film and welcome reception from hosted by the Cancer Center, they will also have an opportunity to be part of the cure. All audience members will have the opportunity to become donors for FREE of charge (normally $65.00) to save a Leukemia patient's life!

More To Live For (Director Noah Hutton –son of Timothy Hutton) is a film of tragedy and loss and strength and hope. It presents the stories of three individuals facing life and death, and their commitment to making a difference.
It is the story of three lives, all shaken by cancer and dependent upon that one vital bone marrow match that could save their life. These individuals are similar only in their fate and prolific accomplishments: Michael Brecker, 15-time Grammy winner, one of the greatest tenor saxophonists of all time; James Chippendale, entertainment executive and founder of The Love Hope Strength foundation, the largest music centric cancer charity in the world and Seun Adebiyi, a young Nigerian training to become the first ever Nigerian winter Olympic athlete in any sport.

Their unrelated paths become connected in a desperate fight for survival and a singular mission: to bring awareness about bone marrow donation to the millions of people who could save a life today. These deeply personal accounts of confronting illness will inspire hope and action, leaving the viewer empowered to become part of the cure.
