LEWISTON — A panel discussion and film screening about aging in Maine will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Sept. 29, at SeniorsPlus Education Center, 8 Falcon Road, as part of the Camden International Film Festival: Aging in Maine.

The panelists will include Kathy Brill, caregiver program specialist at SeniorsPlus; Marilyn Gugliucci, director of geriatrics education/research at UNE; and Julie Shackley, president and CEO of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice.

The event will focus on the issues of aging and dementia-related illness. The event will help the public become better informed of the issues, places to turn for help and the emerging opportunities.

The films “SLOMO” and “My Little Friends” will be shown.

Frustrated with his life, Dr. John Kitchin abandons his career as a neurologist and moves to Pacific Beach, trading his lab coat for a pair of Rollerblades in “SLOMO,” directed by Josh Izenberg.

A very special program brings young children together with elders who have dementia in “My Little Friends,” directed by Megan Mylan.

To register, call SeniorsPlus at 207-795-4010.
