We are proud to share that Everyting is Forever will premiere at the 47th Annual Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival.

It was filmed over the last fifteen years or so by talented Film Director and Editor Vic Zimet, with the prolific writer Stephanie Silber as Producer.
The world premiere will be on Friday April 11th @ 9PM.
The WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival was founded in 1961 by Hunter Todd in Houston, Texas, and remains an annual film festival held each April, dedicated to recognizing excellence in various types of independent films and filmmaking.
In 2014: submissions from 37 countries. The festival presents around 55-60 new Indie feature films and 100 new Indie Short films during the ten-day film festival each April. Aside from the film viewing, the festival offers six Master Classes, professional seminars, and workshops. Both the films and classes are open to the public. In addition, a Festival Club exists that is open every evening during the festival, a Remi Awards Gala Dinner and a unique Consular Sailing Regatta and Texas BBQ held annually at The Houston Yacht Club on the final day of the festival. It is the only film festival in the world that presents a regatta. Attendance is over 30,000 general public and more than 550 international filmmakers over the ten-day event.
Everything Is Forever is the new documentary by director Vic Zimet and co-producer Stephanie Silber. The film is an inspiring profile of musician Nenad Bach, who left his thriving musical career in Croatia to become a worldwide ambassador of peace. He has brought his message of goodwill by meeting and performing for heads of state and appearing with fellow musicians such as Bono, Pavarotti, and Garth Hudson of The Band.
MUSIC DOC ON PEACE ACTIVIST/MUSICIAN NENAD BACH TO PREMIERE AT WORLDFEST-HOUSTON
He’s had dinner by personal invitation at the Clinton White House…performed with Pavarotti…given Bono songwriting advice. He is Croatian/American musician Nenad Bach, and his story is about to hit the big screen.

No strangers to the rock doc genre, Silber and Zimet in the past decade produced films on the late Irish guitar great Rory Gallagher; New York City’s own Black 47; The Flying Neutrinos; and Cyndi Lauper for BRAVO Profiles.
EVERYTHING IS FOREVER follows Nenad on a fifteen year long journey through war and peace and rock & roll. The result is a searching and intimate exploration of the universal creative process.
MUSIC DOC TO PREMIERE
Nenad says, “I wasn’t born on the Mississippi. I cannot sing the blues. So I have been using my collective memory to put ancient vibrations in the modern ear.”
As a person who has witnessed firsthand the horrors of war in his homeland, Nenad is a tireless activist for peace, with his mission statement incorporated both in his music and his life – his ultimate goal is, he says, “world peace in one hour.”
Remarks Zimet, “Although Nenad lives in America, his drive to bring the culture of Croatia to the world never ceases to amaze me.”
