Hi, I am Jeff L. Vogt the Founder & CEO of Imagination Media Studios. I met Jon Matthews at SXSW Film Festival back in 2013. I talked to him recently about my company's work to Reinvent Cinema, where we no longer watch movies in a theater, but we go into a venue and turn it into a theater, and combine cinema(well made short films) fine foods, and live performance. He became intrigued and told me about his 21 minute documentary on the Opioid crisis, and more specifically dealing with how it is affecting his home state of West Virginia, where it is 3 times worse than the rest of the country. (Although it really addresses a national problem.) After hearing about his film about 2 months ago, I knew I wanted to do an event about this. I thought to myself then, I can create not just unique and interesting film experiences for people, but with this event I can actually do something to change our culture. That means a lot to me.

There are many unique minds in Dallas and I am proud to say many are my friends. I know that often when we are entrenced in something we often cannot look at things objectively, especially if we are caught up in addiction. Many times in life we are in a box, the box of where we grew up, the company we work for, the family we were born into. But that isn't reality. And with the help of good people and friends, we can step outside of that box, and see things objectively and begin to create solutions to something we might very well think is impossible. There will be many unique and innovative minds at this event that I believe can think outside of the box to create a solution for the Opioid crisis.

I ask for only two things from those that come: Please work hard to make everyone feel welcome who comes to the event, and if you are comfortable, please join in the discussion after the film to create a solution to the Opioid crisis.

And with any Imagination Media Event, we want to create a memorable experience where most of all, you will meet great like-minded people. That is at the heart of our events.

Part of the proceeds tonight also goes to the Dallas24HourClub.org an organization dedicated to providing homeless people with housing and providing excellent addiction solutions.
