“Since there is so much great, uplifting, challenging, inspiring and thought-provoking content being produced yet unseen, I felt strongly that Phoenix needed a new vehicle to present great films,” said Steve Weiss, executive director for No Festival Required.
“Fortunately, the Phoenix Center for the Arts and our wonderful sponsors feel the same, so from February through May we’ll be programming this monthly event. Don’t dress up, enjoy a good brunch at Carly’s Bistro before and stay downtown afterwards. To me, 1:30 p.m. is a perfect time to watch a good film in a great space with other enthusiasts.”
FIRST FILM STARTS SUNDAY FEB 16 – “SWEET DREAMS”
Synopsis: Rwanda’s first and only all women’s drumming troupe is called Ingoma Nshya. Made up of women from both sides of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the troupe offers a place of support, healing and reconciliation. When the group decides to partner with two young American entrepreneurs, Jennie Dundas and Alexis Miesen of Brooklyn’s Blue Marble Ice Cream, and open Rwanda’s first ever ice cream shop, these remarkable Rwandan women embark on a journey of independence, peace and possibility. SWEET DREAMS interweaves intimate, heart-wrenching stories with joyous and powerful music to present a moving portrait of a country in transition.
