Welcome to the Fundraising page of
Our Voices Film Festival
Dear Family and Friends,
BC Children's has been a lifesaver for our family and friends at many different times and for a surgery I needed. While we were at Children's for my surgery we heard parents speak about having to drive so many hours through the smoke of the wildfires to get their kids treatment, and we know there's great need.
This November I am turning 13, and instead of a birthday party I asked my parents to help me start a film festival for kids and teens, “Our Voices” ( https://filmfreeway.com/festival/OurVoicesFilmFestival ).
We opened it up to the youth of the world to share their perspectives, lives and ideas - to express the things that are important to them. We received over 230+ entries, and will be choosing the finalists and showing them live at the film festival on November 4th, 2017, at the Hollywood 3 Theater in Pitt Meadows, BC.
For the film festival it will be entry by donation, with all proceeds going to the BC Children’s Hospital.
I hope that some of you can make it and celebrate with us - watch some amazing films by youth and kids from all over the world and donate to a great cause. If you are unable to make it to the screening but would still like to donate, any contribution towards this fundraiser would be much appreciated.
Thank you for reading, and I hope to see lots of you at the screening on November 4th! :D
