We’re Having a Movie Screening Fundraiser!

Join us on Saturday, September 18th, 2021 for a screening of the new documentary, “Through My Eyes”!

We are so excited to have you join us to screen a very special documentary entitled, “Through My Eyes” by Candice Macalino and Jaeger Mah that features our very own Executive Director, Shawn Marsolais. This mini-documentary takes viewers through Shawn’s own personal journey growing up experiencing vision loss, and how she eventually found her professional purpose that culminated in the founding of Blind Beginnings.

Come join us for an opportunity to gather together and experience this heart-warming look at Shawn and Blind Beginnings on the BIG screen. We’ve arranged a one-time only in-person screening at The Cinematheque in downtown Vancouver (1131 Howe Street).  We are so excited that we will even be rolling out a red carpet and taking photos paparazzi-style!

The movie is approximately 25 mins long, with a Q&A session to follow featuring the filmmakers, Shawn Marsolais and other special guests. We will also be drawing several door prizes and announcing the winner of our 50/50 draw (tickets for the 50/50 Draw will go on sale September 1st on the Blind Beginnings website).

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available to purchase on site. Each ticket purchased comes with a FREE bag of popcorn.

We hope you won’t miss out on this opportunity to gather together with the Blind Beginnings community, and celebrate this very special documentary. Every ticket purchased helps us continue in our mission to shift perspectives of blindness while inspiring and supporting children and youth who are blind or partially sighted and their families all over BC.
