Announcing our partnership with Future Shorts Film Festival0Comments
As part of a new fundraising initiative in the next few months, we’re extremely excited to announce a fundraising film partnership with Future Shorts Festival the world’s biggest pop up film festival. This unique collaboration will bring together the very best of international short film and create a brand new opportunity for you to help end malaria deaths, a disease that kills a child every minute.
The concept is simple, during the months of October, November and December you can get involved by hosting your own film screening, showcasing a selection of the latest, leading international short films which Future Shorts have cleared with the filmmakers for our use.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to bring friends, family and the local community together and to be part of a growing global network. Not only that, but it provides a fun, creative way to raise funds for malaria, a disease that is preventable and treatable. We will provide lots of fundraising advice and ideas to ensure your screening is both fun and successful. Anyone, anywhere can set up a screening and it can be as big or small as you like. It’s your event, so you decide how you want it to work.
Helen Mabberley, Malaria No More UK’s Fundraising Manager said “Malaria No More UK is excited to be partnering with such an innovative and fresh initiative as the Future Shorts Festival. We know that film has the power to excite and inspire action and we hope that film enthusiasts will chose to harness this power by supporting Malaria No More UK when organising their screening this Winter. We’re delighted that Future Shorts screening partners can now enjoy coming together to both enjoy a film and help end deaths from malaria; we’re making real progress but now more than ever we need to keep up the momentum. Together we can make malaria no more!”
To help raise awareness of our cause, the short film programme will also include one of our own Beat The Mozzy animations starring malicious mosquito Ziii, being foiled in her quest to spread malaria far and wide.
If you’d like to find out more and how you can sign up to be part of this fantastic new venture please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to hear from you. We’ll also be adding more updates to our website in due course so do keep coming back to see how else you can use film to fight malaria.
