Blogger Christi Interviews the Cast of ‘Pass the Light” at the Hollywood Premiere!
Written by Christi Given | February 7, 2015
PI Girls, I had the privilege of going to the official Pass the Light premiere on February 2 at the ArcLight Theatre in Hollywood, California.
Here’s what the film is about:
“Pass the Light tells the story of Steve Bellafiore [played by Cameron Palatas], a 17-year-old high school senior who decides to run for Congress in order to protect the faith that he so loves.” –International Movie Database
Other people in the film you may recognize are Allie DeBarrie from Disney’s A.N.T. Farm, Brendon Eggertson, Rachael Kathryn Bell from Disney’s Suite Life on Deck and more!

There were many people who helped support this film and its alliance with the Epilepsy Foundation. One of cast members is Camille Kim DesJardins, who suffers from epilepsy and was part of the project; her parents were executive producers on the film (Steve and Julie DesJardins). Click here to find out more about epilepsy and support the film and Camille on February 6, 2015, with Carmike Cinemas.
The film addresses bullying, peer pressure, showing God’s love and light, and spreading a nonthreatening message of faith. The main character, Steve, faces the challenge of how to show his community what His faith is truly about when a Congressman claims he has the same faith but uses harsh communication to the town. Steve starts a movement, “Pass the Light,” first in his school, which then spreads throughout the community. Other topics are discussed which could be controversial in the church, but are unique in their portrayal in a film such as this one. The film is a teen to young adult film, but can also be fitting for adults because it deals with social issues in our culture regarding acceptance in our Christian communities.
Here are some more photos from last night’s event in Hollywood:
