OAKLAND, Calif. (July 28, 2022) — The world’s first cannabis college, Oaksterdam University, celebrates its 15th Anniversary by hosting a grand after-party for a sneak preview documentary screening at the 20th Annual Oakland International Film Festival (OIFF) of American Pot Story: Oaksterdam by award-winning critically acclaimed filmmakers Dan Katzir and Ravit Markus.

Presented in partnership with Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), the event will take place on Sept. 24, 2022, at the legendary Fox Theater in Oakland, Calif. It will include a screening of the film followed by an after-party and Alumni reunion with confirmed attendance by politicians, press, cannabis industry legends, and celebrities. In addition to an exclusive networking event, Oaksterdam will present awards to notable figures of service within the cannabis industry. 

Oakterdam’s Nonprofit for Education (The ONE), a 501(c)(3), will produce the event, and all donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be used to fund scholarships and re-entry programs for those afflicted by cannabis prohibition and hoping to get back into the cannabis industry. 

“We at The ONE are producing this event to honor Oaksterdam University’s contribution to the world in bringing education about cannabis and helping form the laws that both cannabis businesses and consumers enjoy so liberally today,” says Priscilla Agoncillo, Chairwoman of The ONE and Executive Producer for the event. “More importantly, we are raising awareness to the dire issue of assisting those still incarcerated for nonviolent cannabis offenses.”

Oaksterdam is the pioneer in providing the highest quality training to people interested in a career in the cannabis industry. OU’s faculty comprises professionals, academics, and subject matter experts who have taught more than 70,000 OU alumni from over 100 countries.  

David Roach, co-founder and director of OIFF, says the film documents the wins and losses a group of people faced when their determination to educate the masses about cannabis met big business and our federal government.  

“The documentary American Pot Story: Oaksterdam takes twists and turns that capture sacrifices made in the city of Oakland, California to turn their beliefs and determination into reality,” he says.
