Reminder! Celebrate the Community Sustaining Fund's 25th on the 25th!!!

Come and join us as we celebrate 25 years of progressive community funding, recognize former and current board members, and watch the film, “Beginners".   

We'll start with special guest Paul Cienfuegos, one of the CSF founders, who will share his historical perspective on the founding efforts.

Then we'll settle down to enjoy “Beginners", the fictional story of an older man who chooses to come out to his son later in life & live as an openly gay person.

Olympia's Arab Film Festival

Event: 
Sun, 10/07/2012 - 2:30pm - 9:15pm

The Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace & Justice will host Olympia's first Arab Festival, Oct. 5-7. Arab Fest is a full weekend event featuring Arab artists, educational tables, children's activities, food, music, dance, films and more! Make sure not to miss our Arab Film Festival on Sunday, October 7th, at The Olympia Film Society. We will be showing the three films The Time That Remains, Je Veux Voir (I Want to See), and Bab Aziz. These diverse films portray the people's voice, strength, love and passion within the Arab world.

We invite our community to celebrate and experience the food, culture, traditions, lifestyles and peoples of the Arab world in a joyous and authentic manner. This event focuses on the diversity and complexity of the Arab peoples by challenging stereotypes, showcasing Arab arts and performance, and celebrating diversity within our community. As stated by Farihan Bushnaq, a local Arab-American community member, "The Arabs are known for their love of poetry, their generosity and for welcoming the foreign visitor. The best way to dispel the negative image of the Arabs is to pay them a visit." Make Arab Fest one of your Arts Walk stops!

Tickets are $5.50 OFS Member, $8.50 General Admission, $4.00 Kids 12 and younger. Tickets will be available at the Olympia Film Society at 360.754.6670,
