Port Townsend Film Festival offers free suicide prevention film

Posted

In honor of Suicide Prevention Month, the Port Townsend Film Festival is offering this month's screening free of charge. 

"The S Word" initially screened at the 2017 Port Townsend Film Festival, and is back in virtual format for all to enjoy through Sunday, Sept. 12. 

In "The S Word,” suicide-attempt survivor Dese’Rae L. Stage is on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight, and humor. Along the way, she discovers a community willing to transform personal struggles into action on a national level in the hope that those intimate stories will help prevent further tragedy.


All donations made through this screening will be donated to local nonprofit The Benji Project, whose mission is to teach proven mindfulness and self-compassion tools to young people and their families and communities. 
Included in this screening is a conversation with PTFF executive director Janette Force; Cynthia Osterman, founder of the Benji Project; and film director Lisa Klein.
