SPARK CHANGE FILM FESTIVAL
CALLING ALL NON-PROFITS
We’re excited to announce the SPARK CHANGE Film Festival open call for non-profits.
You have probably heard of Instant Films or the 48 Hour Film Projects or other similar events…
In the same vein, we are asking filmmakers to come together over a weekend, but instead of having a writer develop a script, we are pairing filmmakers & composers with Los Angeles non-profits to create fun, engaging videos that inspire and raise awareness for amazing causes.
Here’s How it Works
During Friday lunch, non-profits are randomly paired with a professional filmmaking team and work together to determine the video.
Nonprofits will have already determined the project, program or campaign they want to focus on and have organized a volunteer event, activity, or interview opportunity for Saturday morning.
Over the weekend the filmmakers script, shoot, edit, and score a video about your organization, and on Sunday night at 7pm everyone returns to screen the finished short films.
The next event is June 13-15 2014. Interested non-profits should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF SELECTED, NON-PROFITS WILL NEED TO:
Speak to our team (by phone) at least two weeks prior to the festival to review contest rules; discuss your chosen project, program or campaign; and ask/answer questions
Join us for lunch (on us) Friday June 13 from 12-2 pm at WeWork in Hollywood, where you will be paired with your filmmaking team.
Collaborate with the filmmakers so that they can deliver a video on Sunday, June 15 by 5pm.
Attend the screening Sunday night, June 15 from 7-9pm.
We have a sliding-scale price structure for non-profits from $250 – $1,000 depending on your annual budget. Talk to us about what’s possible for your organization. All non-profits receive 5 tickets to the screening and end up with their own short video.
The winning film will be awarded a $1,000 prize for best video to be split 50/50 with the filmmaking team.
