The Red Carpet Affair

Plan to celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night with your fellow Pickford fans!

You are invited to hit the Red Carpet, sip and schmooze, and mingle at Pickford Film Center’s 8th annual Academy Awards viewing party – The Red Carpet Affair. This swanky benefit event sponsors PFC’s Education Fund, which provides innovative Media Literacy courses and Doc-ED documentary screenings, free to local middle school students.
 

Advance tickets are $50 members/ $65 non members – and seating is limited – purchase your tickets by clicking the button below or visiting the box office of Pickford Film Center or the Limelight Cinema now!

 

THE CAUSE

 
All proceeds from the evening will go towards Pickford Film Center’s Education Fund. Thanks to the funds raised last year and other contributions, we were able to invite every student in public and tribal middle schools in Whatcom County to experience free documentaries with Doc-ED. Help us maintain this meaningful program. This year, there are a variety of fun ways you can support:
