Dismissal Time: A short film exploring high school bullying inspired by true events

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 8:00 AM

PHILADELPHIA, PA / ACCESSWIRE / June 21, 2022 / What's done in the dark will come to light! That is the theme of our short film Dismissal Time - a film about an innocent black student victimized by vicious high school bullies and an administration that wants to sweep it under the rug. From the award-winning writer and director, André Joseph comes this real-life inspired story that deals with the themes of bullying, racism and social injustice. Our hero is a teacher named Sharon Vance who makes it her mission to bring those responsible to task.

The upcoming short film was recently premiered at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival and will screen at the Indie Short Film Series in Charlottesville, VA on July 30, 2022. Tickets are now on sale at Eventbrite.

The goal of this short film is to help us get out our message and end the bullying epidemic in all its forms and empower people to speak out and share their stories.

If you want to share in our mission, please watch the trailer at Indiegogo and we would appreciate your donation to help us get this film seen in as many schools, film festivals and other public venues as possible. Together, let's bring this anti-bullying story out of the darkness and into the light.
