Los Angeles Premiere Excitement

Audience response has been encouraging to our message about empowering women and how that is working to eradicate global poverty . To continue the momentum, we are very proud to be a part of the 5th Annual Artivist Film Festival in Los Angeles. It will be our biggest venue to date--the 650 seat Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. We will be screening on Friday, October 3 at 7 PM so we hope for the women of Southern California to come out in solidarity and support the women featured in the film.

It is exciting to be a part of a festival that has the same goals we had in making the film. All along we felt that we could make a cinematic, visually-engaging film that influences the global consciousness about providing basic human rights for marginalized women and girls around the world. Being accepted into Artivist reinforces the fact that we are meeting our goals.

I would be remiss if I did not mention our other upcoming screenings. On September 18th and 20th, we will be screening in the Orlando area at the Global Peace Film Festival. Another great festival promoting social issue films, and most importantly, getting audiences in a discussion on how to make a difference in their world. And we continue getting festival acceptances this fall, including Hawaii, St. Louis, and Mexico. We will update the blog with screening times as soon as we have confirmation on dates.

Please take a moment to sign-up for updates from A Powerful Noise. We can notify you as film festivals accept us to screen in your area. Additionally, we are getting closer to finalizing plans for theatrical events and house parties and we are going to need your support. So get involved now!
