Bank of Marin to Host Film Night Benefit for SchoolsRule-Marin October 21st

Featuring the documentary “Beyond Measure” at The Smith Rafael Theatre

 

In partnership with the California Film Institute, Bank of Marin will host its second annual benefit film night for SchoolsRule-Marin at the Smith Rafael Theatre on October 21, 2014 at 7:00 pm.  Featuring the acclaimed documentary film, “Beyond Measure”, 100 percent of ticket sales will go to benefit SchoosRule-Marin, a coalition of Marin County schools foundations supporting every child, in every public school, in every district in Marin.

 

From the director of the acclaimed film Race to Nowhere, Vicki Abeles’ Beyond Measure offers an optimistic picture of what’s possible in American education.  The film shares stories of innovative public schools from rural Kentucky to New York City that are dramatically improving outcomes for children of all backgrounds.  How they’re doing it has paid off with increased rates of students finishing high school and college.

 

The evening begins with a reception at 5:30 pm at the Smith Rafael Theatre followed by the film screening at 7 pm. Russ Colombo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bank of Marin, and Mary Jane Burke, Marin County Superintendent of Schools, will co-host the event that will include a Q&A with Vicki Abeles, director and producer of Beyond Measure at the conclusion of the film screening.

 

Tickets are $10 for children (under age 17) and $20 for adults.  Tickets are available at either www.bankofmarin.com or rafaelfilm.cafilm.org.
