We hope you join us at The Bay Area Global Health film festival, hosted by our friends over at the Institute for Global Orthopaedics and Traumatology. Each year the festival tackles a pressing issue facing humanity on a global scale. This year the focus is homelessness and mental health, a particularly personal theme for those of us here in the Bay Area.
Their selection of films includes a short film about the Homeless Prenatal Program, drawn from our original documentary series on homelessness in SF, Let’s Get Street Smart. Others that we are looking forward to seeing are The San Francisco Chronicle’s video series Beyond Homelessness and a preview screening of #BeRobin, a much-anticipated documentary film about comedian Margaret Cho and her homeless outreach campaign inspired by the philanthropy of Robin Williams.
The festival starts at 6pm tonight at Public Works in the Mission. Throw the Olympics on DVR for a night and come join the conversation on this vital cause. We hope to see you there!
