I usually don't ask but thought this group might be receptive as Facets' Chicago International Children’s Film Festival (the largest children's film fest) is Oscar-qualifying in the Animated Short category. I am honored to sit on the Facets Board of Directors, a nonprofit that celebrates diverse, independent filmmakers.
Please Help Facets raise funds so they can offer the 37th Chicago International Children’s Film Festival for FREE to 2,000 CPS students. We are trying to raise $40,000 to deliver empathy-driven cinema from around the world.
Now more than ever, many kids are stuck at home without access to much needed school and community programs. And we know film is a powerful way to help these kids expand their perspectives of the world, with some much needed fun entertainment too.
Click below to easily make a donation, buy an exclusive item, or enter the raffle. You can help us make a real difference at this year’s Fest! Act fast, the fundraiser ends October 12!
Founded in 1975, Facets is a non-profit cinema arts organization that transforms lives through the power of world, classic, and independent film.
