The Dallas International Film Festival, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and CancerBlows will present the screening of Song for Hope: The Ryan Anthony Story, a new film celebrating renowned trumpet virtuoso and Dallas Symphony Orchestra Principal Trumpet Emeritus Ryan Anthony.

Prior to the film, audience members can view an exhibit featuring photos and mementos from Anthony’s life and performances. There will also be a performance of Peter Meechan’s Song Of Hope, written for Ryan. Post-screening, there will be a Q&A with the filmmakers and Niki, Jackson, and Rowan Anthony, moderated by James Faust, Artistic Director of Dallas International Film Festival.

Song For Hope is a story about living life to the fullest, about the unwavering strength and support of family and friends and about one man’s refusal to allow his affliction to affect his love of his art. The film, directed by Chris Haigh, portrays the incredible story of Anthony, after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma at the age of 42 and given just months to live.

For many, this would be a crushing blow, but for Ryan, it motivated him to start a charity called CancerBlows and prove to the world that music can save lives. The documentary illustrates Ryan’s rise from child prodigy to musical superstardom, from cancer clinics, chemotherapy, and stem cell transplants to sell-out concerts in symphony halls. Despite overwhelming odds and intense medical treatments, his positivity, determination, and passion for performing drove him to the concert stage.
