Special screening includes a panel discussion with film producers Shoshana Ungerleider and Jim Mittelberger, and UCSF social worker Bridget Sumser, who is featured in the film
The film’s official release is May 4 worldwide, but our Summit attendees will be the first viewers of the short film END GAME outside of Sundance audiences. You won’t want to miss this amazing opportunity!
After our poster session and reception on Tuesday night, Summit attendees will be able to view the film right on site, in the ballroom of the Wyndham. Join your colleagues for this very special night as we all focus on looking at ways to educate and involve others in conversations surrounding life and death.
Following the screening, we’ll have a panel discussion and Q&A with Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider, Dr. Jim Mittelberger, and Bridget Sumser. As many of you know, Dr. Ungerleider funded the film Extremis which was screened at last year’s Summit. She, along with Dr. Mittleberger and others, produced END GAME which was presented as part of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Bridget Sumser, another panelist, is a social worker from UCSF and is featured in the film. We look forward to having their perspective on the film overall and how it can be used to engage your community.
About END GAME
END GAME follows visionary medical practitioners who are working on the cutting edge of life and death — and dedicated to changing our thinking about both. The film was directed, produced, edited by Academy Award winners Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman.
Host a viewing of END GAME in your community
In addition to the film and the panel, attendees will also be able to learn about a free toolkit for using END GAME in their own communities. We know films like this create opportunities for local coalitions and other organizations to host events and facilitate conversations. That’s where our toolkit will come in—giving you the resources you need to host an END GAME viewing right in your backyard.
We’d love to help your group use END GAME, look for more information during this special event on April 10th.
