"BECOMING SANTA has the goods to become an instant Holiday classic.
It's charming, informative, and, best of all, really funny."
- MOVIEFONE / CINEMATICAL
"A wonderful start to the holiday season! Sanderson is an amazing host and hero
for a film. He’s hilarious, intelligent, honest and just sardonic enough to be a
perfect observer and participant in the whole affair without veering toward Grinch/Scrooge territory."

Winner of an Audience Award at SXSW 2011, director Jeff Myers' crowd-pleasing documentary BECOMING SANTA is the story of one man entering the culture and character of Santa Claus for a single season. We follow Jack Sanderson as he bleaches his hair and goes to Santa School. He tries to do everything that Santa is asked to do. He works as a sidewalk Santa, does home visits, a Polar Express Train and a parade. Along the way, Jack collects children's wishes, learns about the benefits of belief, the history and origin of Santa and the ordinary people keeping the spirit alive.
93 minutes. In English. Presented in HD. Unrated. A FilmBuff release.
