To Be Heard – Screenings in NY and LA in August

To Be Heard - Screenings in NY and LA in August

This is an important new film about one of our society’s most pressing issues – youth and the power of the spoken word to change their lives for the better.

Please come see the film in NY or LA if you haven’t already, or even if you have, come again. And please share with your friends and contacts!

Hey folks,

It’s that time for another summer update!

To Be Heard – Making Some Noise in NY and LA in August

We’ve had an amazing run so far this year (most recently winning the Audience Award at the Nantucket Film Festival!) and despite the CRAZY heat in NYC we’re going to keep things moving with a jam-packed August!

First up, in NYC we’re having 2 FREE all day events as part of Rooftop Films Summer Series. The day begins with a Power Writing workshop, followed by a poetry slam featuring the Power Writers and subjects from the film, then ends with a free screening of the film. The slam and screening are general admission but workshop space is limited so, if you are or know a young person interested please RSVP here.

We’ll also be showing at the rocking NY Latino Film Festival as part of the “Cinema Under the Stars” series. Join us for another FREE fun outdoor poetry reading and screening.

Finally, we are thrilled to be part of the IDA’s very competitive DocuWeeks Theatrical Showcase, a week long screening series in NYC and LA, which puts us on track to qualify for the Oscars!

So, if you’re a New Yorker or an Angelino August is THE month to catch To Be Heard. Spread the word and don’t miss out.

As always, screening information is below, and posted on facebook.
