Ape Alliance cordially invites you to a spectacular gala dinner celebrating the power of apes on screen.
27th September 2013
Spectacular Ball with a Difference
Guests will enjoy a champagne reception followed by an a la carte dinner in the Lancaster Ballroom, live music and a celebrity auction, mingling with the world's leading wildlife film and media professionals and ape conservationists.
During the event renowned artist, Daniel Taylor, will be creating a spectacular piece of artwork that will then be auctioned at the end of the evening.
The Savoy’s Parlour Room will be transformed into a jungle where guests will be invited to explore the undergrowth before you are led into the Lancaster Ballroom for dinner and film screenings. Ape Alliance and the Great Apes Film Initiative is bringing the skills of alternative energy pioneers Electric Pedals and their Pedal Power Cinema to the Savoy, demonstrating the cinema system using the power of a humble bicycle to project an excerpt of the groundbreaking 3D documentary film "The Last of the Great Apes". Guests will have to generate electricity by cycling to power the Electric Pedals cinema whilst mingling with the world’s leading film and media professionals and renowned conservationists.
Three hundred million people have been touched by the GAFI initiative, using cinema to promote the preservation of endangered animals. Pedal power brings the conservation message right into the heart of great ape habitats, to the remotest communities in Africa and South East Asia. Hope 4 Apes 2013 will also bring the message home with a UK pedal power school tour, twinning schools in the UK with schools in ape range states.
"In three weeks, over 12,000 people saw the films shown on the first Pedal-Powered Cinema. There is nothing I have ever seen to compare to the wonder in the eyes of tens of thousands of children as they watch the films," Madelaine Westwood, Director of GAFI.
Hope 4 Apes 2013 will raise funds to purchase a further 6 Pedal Power Cinema units to go to the most needed in the ape range states, in addition, working together with our Ape Allies, funding a further five education outreach projects with Hope 4 Apes committee.
