The 20th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival is coming up and I want to take this episode to tell you about this amazing event our Mayberry friend, George, was so instrumental in creating.  For 20 years young film makers have been given an amazing opportunity to learn from and be a part of this wonderful film festival.  Mayberry the next Ron Howard will have directed his first film or drew inspiration from this event that was so near to George’s heart.

Bonus:  This week in Mayberry History.

The 15th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival was held in Florence, Alabama on March 1-3, 2012.  The kickoff of the festival included the dedication of a new Black Box theater named after George Lindsey (The George Lindsey Theatre) and the Ernest Borgnine Performance Hall ribbon cutting. Two Chairs featured George’s presentation at this even back in episodes 187 and 188 and it was certainly special.  If you haven’t heard those episodes, head on over and check them out.

What we haven’t heard yet are the words spoken by Ernest Borgnine during that same presentation.  I’ve delayed using this because it isn’t 100% “Mayberry” but I do believe fans will enjoy hearing a man like Mr. Borgnine speak about his friend, George.  You will hear the genuine love that Mr. Borgnine had for George Linsday and I think you’ll learn a little more about this man who did so much to help others.

The 16th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival is coming up in just a few weeks (February 28-March 2, 2013) so we can all be proud of our friend, George…..just like Ernest Borgnine. He’s still helping others achieve their dreams.  At-a-boy George!
