Washington, DC -- Washington and Hollywood will be colliding in Tampa during the Republican National Convention. 

The Impact Film Festival will be held at Channelside Cinemas in Tampa from August 27-30th.  Tickets to the films are free and open to anyone, whether they're attending the convention or not.  

The film festival is an event held at both the Republican convention and its Democratic counterpart in Charlotte, North Carolina.  It features films that are designed to  "enlighten its audiences and creates a climate for meaningful social impact"--according to the festival's website.

Among the celebrities and filmmakers scheduled to attend the festival are Jeff Bridges (Oscar-winner for "Crazy Heart") who narrated the Food Network's film "Hunger Hits Home" which looks at the crisis of childhood hunger in America and political humorist Mo Rocca (from "CBS Sunday Morning") whose film "Electoral Dysfunction" explores how voting works--and doesn't work--in the USA.
