To Do: Appreciate GIs through Film

• Honor the sacrifices of our men and women in the military by taking in a screening at the GI Film Festival. The festival runs May 6-12 in Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia. In addition to screening new films—both long and short—the festival offers several parties, contests, an awards shows, and even a boot camp on financing and distribution for aspiring film makers.

• Find out how the budget impasse will affect national security. The Heritage Foundation will host a panel featuring Robert Zarate of the Foreign Policy Initiative, Todd Harrison of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, and former Sen. Jim Talent. The discussion will begin at 11 a.m. on May 9.

• Learn whether Islamism is a religious or an ideological movement. The MacDonald-Laurier Institute will host a lecture by Daniel Pipes on May 13 at 7 p.m. in Ottawa.

• Win $250 by writing a blog post on a Freeman article. The Foundation for Economic Education wants to know when its Freeman articles provoke a reaction. If you read a Freeman article and think the author left something out or could have looked at the issue in another way, write a blog post on it, and then send the post to the folks at FEE. Once a month, the foundation’s Thorpe-Freeman Blog Contest will award $250 to the best blog commenting on a Freeman article.

• Learn how to create and market high-impact videos with the Atlas Economic Freedom Foundation’s Lights, Camera, Liberty! program. Ideal candidates are organizations (both U.S. and international) that are committed to using video as part of their communications strategies. Participants get grants for equipment, expert training, and exclusive eligibility to compete in the annual Lights, Camera, Liberty! Film Festival during Atlas’s Liberty Forum, November 13-14 in New York City.  Applications are due August 11.

• Save the dates! We don’t know how to say this, but these events are kind of a big deal: the American Enterprise Institute’s Annual Dinner featuring Rep. Paul Ryan, May 8 in Washington, D.C.; the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs’ 2013 Citizenship Award dinner featuring Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint and Heritage Foundation Founder Ed Feulner, May 9 in Oklahoma City; the Oslo Freedom Forum, May 13-15 in Oslo; the World Congress of Families, May 15-18 in Sydney; the Becket Fund’s Canterbury Medal Dinner honoring Elder Dallin H.
