We are excited to host our 3rd Annual Sprout Film Festival at The Empress Theatre! This beautiful art deco venue is located in downtown Vallejo. Tickets are $30/person and can be purchased here on our website!
The doors open at 2 pm so you'll have plenty of time to browse and bid on our awesome silent auction items, purchase your popcorn, soda, and candy, and select your seats. We will begin watching the films at 3 pm. We've selected 14 short films and they include music videos, poetry, documentaries, animation, and narrative fiction. Halfway through our screening, we'll take an intermission so you can check and finalize your silent auction bids, stretch your legs, and refill your popcorn. After the films, we will host a brief Question & Answer session, and then we'll announce the silent auction winners!
Your support for this event directly impacts our participants' qualify of life. Our most vital resource in providing quality services to our consumers is our staff. Most of our funding is from the state and federal governments; however, it hardly provides a living wage for our direct support staff, much less what they actually deserve for the contributions they make to our consumers’ lives. Your ticket purchases and silent auction proceeds help keep consistent, stable, and quality staffing in our programs. It also enables us to provide significant enrichments to our programs, like our Art@Arc program, literacy, and field trips to places like the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and Major League Baseball games. We can purchase new and exciting curriculums for teaching ADLs, Spanish classes, and healthy relationships. We can stay up-to-date with technology needs and provide staff with Chromebooks and Zoom accounts and consumers with tablets and hotspots.
We hope to see you and your loved ones at this fantastic event!
