THE AGE OF LOVE is incredibly proud to have received a 2013 Fledgling Fund grant, awarded to documentary films ‘that have the potential to change hearts and minds and ignite social change through innovative distribution, strategic outreach and audience engagement.’Our plan is to design and distribute a complete, do-it-yourself Senior Speed Dating kit to be provided, along with a copy of the film, to community centers and healthy aging programs nationwide. The goal is to foster both a new conversation between generations about emotional needs, as well as to provide seniors with a useful, fun and much-needed social outlet.
Communities who organize an event will report local reaction, results and media attention back to this website, where anyone can then follow the progress of and response to the movement across the country (feature to launch later in 2014).
If you’d like to lend support to our project in your community, please let us know.
And, if you’re single and over 70, get ready to date!
