GRASSROOTS   |   ScaredSacred

THE GROUND ZERO AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
September 9-11th, ScaredSacred at Cinemark Tinseltown in Vancouver.

Inspired by the vision and message of ScaredSacred, a grassroots campaign has been launched to raise awareness about the Ground Zeros that scar our world. The Ground Zero Awareness Campaign will coincide with the film's opening weekend September 9th - 11th in Vancouver, BC, Canada around showings of ScaredSacred.

The Ground Zero Awareness Campaign was initiated to expand on the issues and themes in the film and bring attention to all areas at the centre of violence, war and disaster. The emphasis of the campaign is to harness the power of crisis to create positive transformation, using tragedy as a catalyst for change. Speakers from relevant organizations, individuals touched directly by the issues, and the filmmaker himself will be brought together to share their experiences and stories. A special focus will be placed on the Ground Zeros visited in the film.

The campaign will feature keynote speeches from Vancouver City Councillor Jim Green, writer Joy Kogawa and many others, as well as performances by Poets Against War. A "Ground Zero Information Centre" will showcase representatives and displays from supporting organizations such as Amnesty International, War Resisters Support Campaign, Greenpeace, Vancouver Chapter of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan, Women Against Violence Against Women (WAVAW), InterSpiritual Centre of Vancouver, Multifaith Action Society, Vancouver Raging Grannies, and Veterans Against Nuclear Arms (VANA). Events will be held at Cinemark Tinseltown, around showings of the film over its opening weekend, September 9th to 11th. Audience members will be treated to Q & A's with the filmmaker and guest speakers.
