Soufra showcased at the 2018 National CARE Conference in Washington D.C.
A quick red-eye flight and (several) cups of coffee later, our entertainment team was up and ready for the Washington D.C. premiere of our latest release, Soufra at the CARE Conference last week. Executive produced by Susan Sarandon and directed by Thomas Morgan (Waiting for Mamu, Storied Streets) of Rebelhouse Group, Soufra tells the story of Miriam Shaar and her inspirational quest to create a catering company within a Beirut refugee camp.
CARE, a non-profit that has been fighting poverty and promoting social justice all over the world for over 70 years, showcased the film as part of their 16th annual CARE Conference. With over 500 students and CARE advocates from around the world in attendance, the conference was held at the George Washington University campus. The screening was a great success and included a Q&A session afterward with director Thomas Morgan where he was able to speak about Soufra's role in refugee awareness, social entrepreneurship and female empowerment.
Non-profits like CARE play a huge role in getting likeminded people together to support a cause and also in facilitating dialogue. The 2018 CARE Conference was a great way to do just that, with advocates from all over the world coming together to discuss global issues and celebrate films like Soufra.
We were thrilled with the turnout for the CARE Conference and are excited for the many Soufra screenings to come! This fall, working with the team at Rebelhouse, we will be bringing Soufra to over 100 cities across the country. Join us on our theatrical road show and follow Hydro Studios on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for real time updates in the coming months.
