First Annual 21st Century Youth Wellness FaireFeaturing The Film
"SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in The Digital Age"

Presented by Glenwood Vaudeville Revue
915 Grand Ave, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601, USA

Doors Open @ 6:00pm
Tickets - $10/person  



A new documentary film called “Screenagers,” aimed at understanding the impact of our children’s increased connection to digital screens, will leave many adults re-evaluating their parenting tactics. While there is no turning back on the digital age, the filmmakers hope the project can serve as a jumping off point for a much-needed conversation.

“Screenagers” is a personal look at how families are coping with kids and screen time and how being connected to devices is effecting relationships and even child development. The film was directed by Delaney Ruston, a Seattle filmmaker and physician who uses her own experience with her children as the central storyline.
