A few weeks ago, we shared with you that Telecare leader and Redwood Place administrator, Cliff Morrison, was recognized at the Cannes Film Festival for his efforts as part of a team who established the first dedicated AIDS wing in the country at the San Francisco General Hospital during the epidemic in the 80s.
This week, we’re proud to share with you that the film, 5B, is gaining even more publicity. Plus, you can soon see it for yourself.
The documentary premiered at the LA Pride event on June 7. Cliff had the honor of walking the red carpet with actress Elizabeth Chambers, and gave an interview with Halle Berry for Access Hollywood.
What could be more fun than that? Cliff chose Telecare’s own VP of Operations, David Heffron and David’s husband, to attend the event.
“I still can’t believe that the message of this film has caught on everywhere it has been seen,” Cliff said.
Want to catch the flick yourself? We have good news. 5B hits select theaters nationwide on June 14th. To celebrate the premiere, Cliff will be on the Today Show that morning with actress Julianne Moore.
Additionally, 30% of net proceeds earned from the film will be donated to (RED)’s Global Fund www.Red.org.
