A special screening of an award-nominated, made-in-the-North-Okanagan film will help local families.

Vernon’s Melissa Jacobs, owner-operator of Inspire Kindness Productions, produced the documentary Women Lead Through Adversity, featuring local women in an inspirational story with lessons on thriving through hardship.

The documentary, funded by a $20,000 grant from Telus with STORYHIVE, will play Sunday, April 2, at 6 p.m. at the Towne Theatre.

“It’s a fundraiser for Inspire Kindness Productions for our annual Christmas in July campaign, where families will be nominated by our community,” said Jacobs.

Local singer/songwriter Andrew Allen collaborated with Inspire Kindness Productions for the documentary’s soundtrack with the yet-to-be-released song Feels Like.
