Even when courageous filmmakers find a way to tell their unique stories, they often do not have all the required support, knowledge, or funding, to complete their films and ensure they reach the market, in a way that will catch the public’s attention and imagination. Films Force Change will help their emotional stories reach audiences.
The films that Films Force Change will choose to
support will connect with subjects and issues of our time, whether about Human
Rights, the Environment, Business, Politics or Social, Religious, and Cultural
importance. The funding for Films Force Change
would come initially from donations and fund raising activities.
The proposed charity would welcome enquiries from
potential trustees and earlier pledges of support.
FCC is being set up by David Pearson and Elizabeth Morgan Hemlock, producers of Arturi Films.
David Pearson and Elizabeth Morgan Hemlock of Arturi Films who produced the gripping cinema film, Mugabe and The White African, are speaking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival next week to discuss the making the Mugabe and The White African and will show clips from it and answer questions on Tuesday 11th October at 8.45pm-10pm at the Playhouse in Cheltenham. Tickets can be obtained from http://www.cheltenhamfestivals.com/find-events/literature/l190-mugabe-and-the-white-african
Said David, “Films like Mugabe and the White African are difficult to get made and we believe more powerful films that highlight the need for change could be produced to reach the broadest audience, with help that is currently difficult to find. Films Force Change will offer filmmakers support for completion help with award campaigns, outreach and focused calls to action. The experience we learned through making Mugabe and The White African can be used to help other films succeed on a wide range of subject matters”.
We hope to be open for submissions in 2012. Look out for the news. If you want to be put on our mailing list please send an email here
