“Voices of Grief”: Bethesda-Sponsored Film to Appear at Acclaimed Film Festival
Bethesda Senior Living Communities is proud to announce that “Voices of Grief: Honoring the Sacred Journey” has been accepted at the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival in Colorado Springs Nov. 11 to 13.
Bethesda Senior Living Communities is sponsoring this educational film because the filmmakers’ mission so closely aligns to our own. Their mission is to restore compassion, forgiveness and loving kindness in the process of grief in our culture.
“We are proud to sponsor ‘Voices of Grief’ because it beautifully captures the spiritual questions around the end of life,” said Angela Green, Marketing Director for Bethesda Senior Living Communities. “Grief is a central part of life, particularly as we age, but it’s not something we generally talk about in day-to-day life. This film opens up discussion around an important topic.”
“Voices of Grief” shares a fresh perspective on the many ways humans navigate through grief or help others along their journey. In the film, contemporary authors, grief experts and spiritual teachers share personal stories of loss to explore the roles of community, compassion and connection in this sacred journey.
The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival is the longest running women’s film festival in North America. The festival is held in high regard with both national and international audiences, and it honors films and filmmakers that present the world as women experience it. The festival’s thought provoking documentaries, narrative shorts and animated films encourage global awareness and personal growth.
Prior to its appearance at the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival, “Voices of Grief” will make its national debut at the upcoming National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization conference Oct. 31 to Nov. 2.
Additionally, care teams at several Bethesda communities have hosted exclusive viewings of the film for prospective residents and their families, as well as professionals in the community. Several other communities will host screenings in the coming months.
