Dear Friends and Comrades,
The Land Action 4 in collaboration with the Bay Area film collective Liberated Lens and the Omni Commons will be presenting Housing for All: Film Fest a day full of films, workshops and fun featuring all-local social justice, activist organizations.
We are asking our comrades to present workshops and table at this fundraising festival and I would really love for you to come and share your knowledge and experiences with our community. The festival will take place May 14th and 15th from 6pm-10:30pm in the Omni Commons ballroom. Please see the FB event, Housing for All: Film Fest, for a very detailed schedule of films, Q&A and workshops. Hands-on workshops will be presented in between films to get your blood pumping after sitting down for a spell. Tabling will be continuous throughout the event. Also, if you would like to vend anything, this has been approved as long as you have a seller's license.
Delicious dinner choices will be catered by the local eats collective Dos Manos, menu and pricing will be posted at the event, but rest assured that all diets are being well considered. The film fest is a BYOB event, feel free to bring drinks of your liking. There might even be a pop-up bar (we just gotta get our hands on a licensed mobile bar tender, send recommendations my way)!!
Here are the trailers for a sample of the films we have lined up for the weekend: Shelter: A Squatumentary, Edible City, andOccupy the Farm. After each screening there will be a Q&A session with the directors, producers and activists involved in the film. And in between each screening there will be workshops and mingling:)
I'm really looking forward to this being a BIG, FUN event!! We have the Omni Ballroom, and I would really love to see it filled with activists and our supporters of all sorts!! This is also a fundraiser for the Land Action 4 legal defense. We are suggesting a donation of $5-$25 dollars at the door, depending on your ability to give and NOTAFLOF. We are now only $500.00 away from paying back the $3600.00 that Patrick had to borrow to get out of jail!!! I know that a lot of you have already been making that happen, and we all are incredibly blown away by how supportive our community has been. Thank you so much from the bottom of all of our warrior hearts!!!
LA4 will also be selling some really kick ass t-shirts (on a sliding scale) for everyone to wear to our pretrial hearing on May 20th. The judge can't be mistaken about the courtroom being packed with our supporters if y'all are wearing LA 4 Anti-Gentrifukation t-shirts!!!
Peas, Love, Solidarity
