"Words" Makes Its International Debut!


Hey, world travelers-- We're going to Zeeland!
Okay, we're not, as in the team that's been keeping this blog. We will, sadly, not be posting wild stories about capers abroad. But our movie? That sucker's gonna be well-traveled!

Words will enjoy its international screening debut at
filmtheater Zierikzee (fiZi) in the Netherlands on Thursday, April 8 at 19:30 (7:30 pm), thanks to the selection of our film by Leonard Howard, fiZi's programmer. The screening is free and will be promoted by the Netherlands’ National Mental Health Foundation, as well as several local mental health organizations (see links below).

About the screening: The United Nations has announced that April 2 is
World Autism Awareness Day.

Each year the National Mental Health Foundation chooses a subject about which to promote awareness, contacting support groups and art film houses to host programming related to the theme. This year, April 2-10 has been named “Autism Week” in the Netherlands.

About the venue: fiZi – filmtheater Zierikzee – was founded in 2001, with the aim to screen a wide range of high quality films that will appeal to the film lover – something for everyone. They strive for diversity in genre, style and land of origin.

Trivia: Zeeland's coat of arms bears the motto, "luctor et emergo" (Latin for "I struggle and I emerge"). We can think of no better slogan for independent film!
