That's a seriously amazing thing to do. $25 really isn't that much for a festival ticket these days, especially ones that include other events in the ticket price, so it's not like they're charging through the nose and then keeping the half they would have charged otherwise. This is just a legitimately good thing.
If you're in the New York area, want to be a part of the disaster relief, and are too selfish to give just to give, this is the perfect opportunity to give and to get. Or if you just want to see the film, you get the extra benefit of charity beyond that. Isn't that awesome? Yeah it is.
The same weekend The 2012 South Asian Film Festival's Closing Night Film was scheduled to occur, New York and New Jersey were struck by a natural disaster of unimaginable proportions.
As the surrounding area picks up the pieces after Superstorm Sandy, The 2012 South Asian International Film Festival is very proud to announced that its Closing Night film, VALLEY OF SAINTS, will screen this Saturday, November 17th, with 50% of all proceeds going to The Red Cross Disaster Relief.
We realize just how late of notice this is, but any support you might be able to give this film and benefit would mean the world to us.
VALLEY OF SAINTS will screen at The SVA Theater, located at 333 West 23rd Street, this Saturday at 9:00PM.
A full schedule of the night's events are below:
7:30PM to 8:30PM
