Event description
Join us for an Impact Cinema Screening of The Upstanders followed by a panel discussion about bullying in partnership with Kids4Kids.

About this event

We are so excited to be presenting an Impact film for a great cause! All ticket sales proceeds will go to Kids4Kids, a non-profit organization in Hong Kong with a vision to help create a future where all young people are empowered to be changemakers with the belief that they are never too young to change the world.

The Upstanders is an iNDIEFLIX Original documentary about resilience, and the power of connection to end bullying.

The Upstanders explores all sides of cyber-bullying, from bully to victim, bystanders and family members. Social media’s power means that bullying is now a 24/7 phenomenon, where even changing schools and phone numbers, or deleting accounts cannot stop the cycle. Covid has increased the incidence of cyber-bullying by 70%. Changing human behavior and connection is the key, and this is what the film addresses.

Weaving together personal stories of teenagers and their families, as well as teachers and brain-scientists, The Upstanders shows the importance of empathy and resilience to transforming attitudes and action, and highlights new laws and established programs that are already reducing bullying in schools and communities. It shows that everyone is needed to eradicate cyber-bullying, and gives bystanders the confidence and tools to become 'Upstanders', and help change the narrative.

After the screening we will dive deeper into the subject with a panel discussion featuring four special guests:

Mabel Sieh- Executive Director at Kids4Kids

John Shanahan-Psychologist & Learner Support Director at Hong Kong Academy

Samsara- An individual who has gone through a gender transition

Natasha Sylvester- Mother of a teen who has gone through a gender transition
