African films premiere tomorrow night!

16 Nov

For those who follow the { First Kiss Films } blog, you already know that the Burundi Film Center is a project very close to my heart. It is an important cause that I have supported since the beginning by donating my time, artwork and a percentage of profits and tomorrow night is the big night we’ve been working towards for the last three years.


Tomorrow evening, come see the North American premiere of the short East African films that were produced through the film center this past summer. It’ll be an incredible evening of artwork, culture and films you won’t see anywhere else including a Q&A with the Canadian Co-founder who has just been nominated one of CBC’s Top 50 Champions of Change for his work in Africa!


So far this project has been self-funded and with the help of donations from friends, family and the Canada-World Cinema Project. Special thanks to our generous sponsors: The Sam Group for our rockin’ t-shirts, Ottawa Wood for building the gorgeous barnboard frames, GPC Labworks for the prints, Malen Framing for putting the final touches on our silent auction items, BarBuzz for printing promotional materials and AMBphoto for covering this event!

LOCATION: Mayfair Theatre, 1074 Bank Street
TIME: 7:00pm – 9:00pm
ADMISSION: $10

All proceeds will go to keeping this educational project afloat – please come to this very special event and allow the Burundi Film Center to continue to “Inspire. Educate. Entertain.”.

    Thank you to all who came out to support our benefit! It was a wonderful evening with lots of great discussions about the films and the silent auction was sold-out! We were able to raise $650 which will help us make copies and distribute the 2010 films that were produced this year by the students to film festivals around the world.
