JOIN US FOR MEDIA THAT MATTERS!
Film with impact! Join us on Sunday, June 15 for the Spark Change Film Festival, screening ten, 2-3 minute films from our 48-hour film festival for non-profits.
Inspired by “Lights, Camera Help”, “Instant Films” and other short-format live film creation events, over a weekend local nonprofits will be paired with professional filmmakers who will be tasked to write, produce, shoot, and edit a short film... all in two days!
The finished videos will offer compelling stories about Los Angeles that touch and inspire. Filmmakers work with nonprofits to develop script ideas and determine which genre best suits their campaign or program. In a weekend, with little or no sleep, the filmmakers produce a 2-3 minute film that is screened Sunday night before a live audience. A $1,000 prize will go to the top video.
WeWork Hollywood, Youth Speak Media Collective, Social Venture Partners (Los Angeles), Academies for Social Entrepreneurship, Synergy TV, Social Enterprise Alliance (Los Angeles Chapter), The Grantsmanship Center, Green Business Networking, Process Green, and Monster Beverages.
