The festival honors the best in World War II related content and keeping the memories and stories of what these veterans accomplished is so very important. We feel a connection to the men we portrayed in Band of Brothers and preserving their legacy and those of all veterans who fought in World War II is important to understanding their dedication to the cause of preserving democracy throughout the world. Any festival that highlights this is a true treasure.” James Madio, Sgt. Frank Perconte in HBO’s Band of Brothers.
