2010 Can't Stop The Serenity Event

If you’ve not heard of the “Can’t Stop the Serenity” (CSTS) events, I would encourage you to get involved and seek one out.  CSTS is a unique fundraising even for Equality Now, a charity which supports women’s rights around the world, working for equality.

Sharing a laugh with Kelly Dougherty, friend and costume designer for BC:R, prior to the movie.

Once a year, people join together around the globe and host charity screenings of Joss Whedon’s feature film ‘Serenity’. The money raised through the CSTS events is given to Equality Now and other worthy causes. As a treat this year, seven lucky cities were also chosen to receive an early “rough cut” of Browncoats:Redemption.  These cities were chosen based on the results of an essay contest where event organizers from across the globe shared how their city fits into the Firefly/Serenity ‘verse.  Some of the cast and crew got together about a month prior and announce the seven winning cities.  The video announcement is embedded below.  Congratulations to the seven winning cities!

I attended the Baltimore CSTS screening, hosted by Michael C. Dougherty, director of Browncoats:Redemption.  It was great to see a number of the cast and crew on hand to support the charity effort.
