Saturday Evening Showcase
Join us for a moving screening of A House Made of Splinters, an intimate documentary that captures life at a halfway home for children in Eastern Ukraine.
Special guests from our non-profit partner Project HOPE will join us after the screening to discuss their relief work on-the-ground in Ukraine and the surrounding region.
100% of our box office proceeds for the entire 2022 festival will go towards Project HOPE’s efforts to deliver medicine, medical supplies, mental health support, and other urgent assistance to families in Ukraine and those who have sought refuge in Poland, Romania, and Moldova.
We also encourage audiences to explore the work of Voices of Children, which gives psychological and psychosocial support to children who have suffered trauma due to war. This organization is doing incredibly important work in Ukraine, and is very close to the heart of Simon Lereng Wilmont, the director of A House Made of Splinters.
Following our Saturday Showcase Film, we’ll move to the lobby of the ShowPlace Icon theater for our After Party! There will be appetizers, desserts, complimentary beer/wine, and good company as we celebrate another year of making an impact with storytelling.
