'Holden On' (2017, 1h 42m, Director: Tamlin Hall)
Holden, a small-town football player, fights to keep his mental illness a secret at all costs. Based on a true story.
Director Tamlin Hall and his Holden On team have a special love for Colorado Springs. Our 501(c)(3) IAMHOLDENON board member and teacher liaison, Morgan Melton, is a Colorado Springs resident, where she teaches English at Widefield High School.
Students in Morgan's class and other classes at Widefield High have completed IAMHOLDENON art projects and many of Morgan's former students attended the screening of Holden On at the Breckenridge Film Festival this past year, where Holden On won awards for Best Director and Best Actor.
