We don't often cover short films here on ComingSoon.net, but once in a while one comes along that's so special, we can't ignore it, and it certainly doesn't hurt that David Darg's Sun City Picture House has a couple of name actresses as its executive producers - Maria Bello and Olivia Wilde. The film documents the building of a makeshift movie theater in a refugee camp in quake-stricken Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and it's a beautiful film that's really something to be proud of.

Most people would know Ms. Wilde from the TV show "House" and movies like TRON: Legacy and Jon Favreau's upcoming Cowboys & Aliens, but not many of her fans may realize she's been an activist going down to Haiti for years before the quake struck. Getting involved with this short film was a chance to share the importance of doing something to help and how even the smallest contribution can have a huge impact.

Check out our video interview with Ms. Wilde below where we talk about how she got involved with the film through her work with Artists for Peace and Justice. She also talks about her love for docs and film festivals and a couple of new things she has in the works.

Sun City Picture House is now playing as part of the "One for All" shorts program at the Tribeca Film Festival, and you can catch repeat screenings of it on Wednesday, April 27 at 3:45 PM, Friday April 29 at 3:30 PM and Sunday, May 1 at 4pm.
