What We Do

We help filmmakers through two methods:

1. Access to our broad network of industry professionals who are able to help from simple advice through crewing for complex locations and even distribution.

2. If a filmmaker’s project fits our vision, we offer assistance with fundraising through our non-profit.

We also help humanitarian and mission organizations to better tell their stories by providing access to professionals who volunteer or work at reduced rates to bring these stories to life.


FUNDRAISING: If a filmmaker’s project fits our mission and is selected for assistance through the Community Films Foundation, we can help by collecting funds while offering donors a tax-deduction for their gifts toward the project. These funds can be for Production or Post-Production purposes. Filmmaker’s may need help with specific parts only (i.e. color correction, sound design, etc.) or with their entire project. The Community Films Foundation retains 10% of all funds raised for overhead and other costs.

DISPERSION OF FUNDS: Once funds have been collected and the project is moving forward, funds are typically released over time and as needed covering specific costs as needed. For example, the Foundation can pay the post-production facility directly for the services provided, which also puts us in a unique position to help facilitate discounted rates for the filmmaker to help the budget go further than it would otherwise.
