Stone Soup Films Special Events!

Annual Fundraiser


JOIN US November 10th, 2016 for our Annual Fundraiser Event!

Stone Soup Films will soon begin production on its 100th film since 2008 and is wrapping production on a feature-length documentary about education reform. To commemorate these momentous achievements & to benefit our mission, we are delighted to present a Special Advanced Benefit Screening of the Sundance Award-winning film, THE BAD KIDS for our 2016 annual benefit.

We invite volunteers and donors within the DC film community and beyond to join us in raising critical funds to sustain our programs. Please join us on Thursday, November 10 to be one of the first people to see THE BAD KIDS, and learn more about our work and the films we’ve recently completed for local nonprofits. Guests will also get a sneak peek at the trailer for our upcoming education documentary, Breakthrough prior to viewing the film.

This event is the only scheduled DC screening of the film ahead of its national theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles in December. Program introduction by Secretary of Education John King and Q&A with Directors Keith Fulton and Lou Pepe after the screening.

A VIP Reception will be held at Parthenon (5510 Connecticut Ave NW) at 6pm. This precedes the screening and is exclusively for VIP ticket levels and above. From the restaurant, we will move to The Avalon Theatre (5612 Connecticut Ave NW) for the main event. Doors to the theater will open promptly at 7pm for admission to the screening.

We are grateful to FilmRise and Low Key Pictures for providing this fantastic documentary film for our annual benefit — their support means so much to our organization and the nonprofits we serve. All funds raised will directly benefit our mission to drive social change by mobilizing our volunteers to produce documentary films for nonprofits.
