War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict, has launched its inaugural War Child Film Festival in partnership with Everyman Cinemas.
The unique two-week event combines cinematic previews and premieres with live events, Q&As, panel discussions and performances; all to raise money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war.
The eclectic programme will include special events curated by bands, radio stations, record labels, cultural publications as well as live performances, DJs and more.
To date four of the performances can be announced with several more anticipated:
• Oval Space London - War Child x Oval Space Cinema presents Purple Rain
• Ham Yard Theatre - UK Music Video Awards Nominations Showcase
• Screen on the Green - Last Night in Paris: ‘Soiree’
• CLF Art Cafe, Bussey Building - Floating Points: Reflections – Mojave Desert followed by the War Child Film Festival closing party in collaboration with Dance for Refuge
War Child has a rich heritage in innovative musical partnerships and has been harnessing the power of music to change lives since 1995 with the launch of the HELP Album.
100% of the profits from the tickets sold will fund War Child’s crucial work providing protection, education and longer time livelihood solutions to some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
War Child works in seven countries including Yemen where the conflict has had devastating consequences for children there. There are shortages of food, medicines and vital supplies and more than 2.2 million children are malnourished.
