THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 1ST
5-8pm - The New Vic Theater
33 W. Victoria St
Special Evening Includes Screenings Of Award-Winning Films From The 2016 AFF, Complementary Vegan Food, Wine And More!
Davey’s Voice is partnering with The Center for Animal Protection and Education, a non-profit animal advocacy, rescue and sanctuary to raise awareness of the many issues that animals face in today’s society. Over the years, CAPE has helped thousands of animals and established the CAPE Animal Sanctuary in Grass Valley, California which is now the permanent home to dozens of animals. Every year, CAPE produces the Animal Film Festival, the only one of its kind, in order to advocate for the right of all animals to live a long, full life, free from pain and suffering. Now, for this first time ever, this festival is coming to Santa Barbara.
This event will feature 6 short films centered on the lives of animals, exploring the human-animal bond, animal welfare and compel viewers to become aware and active in animal issues. A best friend turkey, a German Shepherd savior, Bulgarian dog shelters and more! If you love animals, you must see these films! Click here to learn more.
We will have special guests in attendance including George Zaverdas, the director of the multi award-winning film, David & Goliath. George will appear on stage after his film screens to lead an audience discussion and Q&A. Additionally, two Santa Barbara heroes who were involved in the case of puppy Davey—District Attorney Joyce Dudley and Deputy DA Kevin Weichbrod –will also be speaking and be honored during the festival.
Kindness towards animals will be evident in the food and beverages served, including complementary vegan appetizers from Nimita Cuisine and wine donated by Lieff Wines and Margerum Wine Company..
All proceeds from this event will benefit Davey’s Voice animal programs including our current rescue and adoption initiative of 41 dogs saved from the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
Please join us for this special night which will mark our most recent effort to ensure something positive comes out of Davey's horrific death and give a voice to the many defenseless animals like him.
