Film for Change Launch Invite

Posted Sunday 10 Aug 2014

The launch of Film for Change Aotearoa will take place 14th of August from 6pm to 8pm at the Film Archive in Wellington.

Film for Change is a charity that makes films for other charities and organisations with charitable purposes, striving to up-skill its volunteer film-makers along the way.

The launch of the Trust is both a celebration and an opportunity to achieve our core objective on a grand scale.

The first part of the evening will be a networking event with snacks and drinks. Charities will be able to display film project briefs and film-makers can sign up for them.

Following the networking portion of the evening there will be a screening of a few of the short films made with charities and two shorts that explain what the Trust does and why people should join.

Please visit their website for more information about the Film for Change and to RSVP if you want to join them at the event!
