Support OPEN CINEMA’s 4th Annual Fundraiser with a Silent Auction Item.

This post published on March 21, 2011


OPEN CINEMA recently held our 85th screening to another packed house! During our eighth season, we’ve had a near perfect run of sold out events! We’ve partnered with local organizations such as The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, CRD, FoodRoots and Transition Towns to bring documentaries and discussion on diverse and relevant topics such as food security, creative expression, First Nations, local history, waste-free living, the economics of happiness and sustainable green energy.

As cultural funding sources dwindle, in order to continue offering this kind of programming we must turn to you, the community at large. We are inviting local ethical businesses such as yours to participate in our fourth annual fundraising event by providing products or services for a silent auction at our Earth Day Celebration, which will take place at the Victoria Event Centre.

On Wednesday April 20th 2011, we will screen the Victoria premiere of the timely documentary Powerful: Energy for Everyone. filmmaker David Chernushenko’s global journey to examine the alternatives to the conventional energy system. You can find out more about the event by visiting the event page.


In return for the donation of a silent auction item worth $25 or more, we will promote your business in our event publicity and feature your logo on our website and on the screen during the hour prior to the film screening. This values-based advertising opportunity is worth a value of at least $100.

We hope you’ll join us at this fabulous community celebration featuring local food treats and cash bar.

Please contact me at the number below to make a donation, or for more information.
