Christmas Film Festival June 2013: It's a Wonderful Life

June's movie will be "It's A Wonderful Life", as told to us by

Is there a more iconic Christmas movie out there?

That's a curious question. While It's A Wonderful Life is frequently mentioned as one of the best films ever made is it even a Christmas movie?

Think about it. Other than the Christmas tree at the end of the movie and a few scenes with falling snow, what makes this a Christmas movie at all?

It isn't about Christmas. It is about a man in crisis, who cannot see his own worth to his family, his community and his business. He gets visited by an angel who shows him what would have happened if he had never been born.

That's all great....but what does it have to do with Christmas?

These and other questions we will be exploring this month during our year round Christmas Film festival.
