We are very proud to announce that Buffyfest will once again be a global sponsor for this year's Can't Stop the Serenity events, their 5th anniversary! This is our second year supporting the cause, which supports Equality Now through their awesome fund raising events around the world. The events give fans a chance to see the “Big Damn Movie” on the big screen, while helping to protect human rights of women around the world. From their site:
Founded in 2006, this year marks the notable 5th anniversary of Can’t Stop the Serenity. From a fledgling idea from the One True B!x to the multi-national event it has become, there is no doubt that, far from getting old, Serenity continues to draw crowds and good Samaritans from near and far: each screening donates money to Equality Now and other great causes while giving like-minded folks the opportunity to help charities without ever leaving a theater! With the fifth year off to a great start, its about time you see what all the fuss is about.
In addition to watching Serenity, and at some events, Dr. Horrible, this year 7 lucky cities will also be screening Browncoats: Redemption – A Fan Film for Charity, which will be released in September 2010.
The fun has already started in San Francisco which kicked off the CSTS season with the first event last weekend! Click here to find an event in your area. The official website is updated daily with registered cities and their ticket status...but if there isn't an event in your city, you could always host your own - no matter how small!
