Saint of 9/11, which follows the life of Father Mychal Judge and his heroic acts during the September 11 terrorist attacks, will screen in 13 cities for the National 5th Anniversary Remembrance. The film has already premiered at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival.

Father Judge, who was gay and an AIDS activist, became a national hero when he decided to assist fire department and civilian victims during the terrorist attacks on New York City. The 13 cities airing the movie are Boston; Denver; Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Kansas City, Mo.; Milwaukee; Minneapolis; Nashville; Patchogue, N.Y.; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Salt Lake City; San Francisco; and Seattle. Also, many of these cities have invited local firefighters to attend the screenings.

In San Francisco the movie is being sponsored by the San Francisco Police Department, San Francisco Fire Fighters Local 798, and the American Red Cross in San Francisco. In Kansas City, the Interfaith Council as well as the Human Relations Commission are sponsoring the film, with the mayor declaring a citywide moment of silence before the screening. (The Advocate)
