Voices With Impact World Premiere: It’s time for the world to hear these stories. 10 films. 5 minutes each. 5 about mental health and sexual violence. 5 about mental health in indigenous and Native American communities. 1 night to change everything.
Voices With Impact is a program to amplify voices in conversations about mental health that are often left out, overlooked and silenced. In its first year, 10 filmmakers received funding to make original short films about mental health and sexual violence (5 filmmakers) and mental health in indigenous / Native American communities (5 filmmakers). The films will be used at colleges and universities throughout North America as part of Art With Impact’s powerful educational programs about mental health.
The Voices With Impact World Premiere will be on Thursday, June 27, 2019 at the Downtown Independent theater in Los Angeles. Join prominent people in politics, media and activism as we celebrate the work of 10 incredible emerging filmmakers. In addition to screening the films, there will be guided discussion about these vital topics, as well as a Q&A with the filmmakers. Don’t miss this revolutionary event where stories that have gone unheard for too long are finally brought front and center.
