What a great way to kick-off next weekend’s Global Voices Film Festival! The preview party was a success and a hopeful predictor of the turn-out for the festival approaching! With a live band playing over discussions of the films, special events, and larger affairs, a spirited mood filled the Goethe Institute in Boston last night.
The guests attending the party ranged from college students to older generation artistic and global enthusiasts. The attendees previewed two shorts: one capturing the voice of an in-mate exposing his concern of equal rights for in-mates to President Obama and the other, Tolibu Dibu Datchu, calling attention to the sounds of Bulgarian music. Along with the shorts, director Jean Marie of Tea on the Axis of Evil (a film being shown at Global Voices), gave a wonderful speech.
If you missed out on last night’s event don’t worry, you are invited to a FREE screening of Home is Where You Find It by film-maker Neil Baer! This event is open to the public and it takes place on Oct. 4th at 6pm in the Weiner Auditorium of the Kennedy School at Harvard University.
Neil Baer, executive producer of Law & Order: SVU and E, will share his reflections on the ongoing project of Home is Where You Find It, a film made by a 16-year old AIDS orphan from Mozambique who has one powerful story to tell.
His film, Home is Where You Find It, is just one fine example of the documentaries featured in this year’s festival. Now in its eighth year, the Global Voices Film Festival will showcase documentaries by talented filmmakers around the world.
We hope that more people and more people are able to join us for this FREE screening and for next weekend’s Global Voices Film Festival! Come and experience the power of story-telling from the incredible voices of those across the globe.
We hope to share this opportunity with you!
All the best,
