Films for Social Justice is a club that aims to help local Colorado Springs nonprofits and community organizations by creating free media content. We produce short films that capture the spirit and importance of these organizations. we also collaborate on other media projects, from screenings to poetic film, to uphold underprivileged voices in the Springs.
Who we are: We are a group of film majors, minors, and enthusiasts with film equipment and capabilities who want to keep our film skills sharp and engage with social issues we are passionate about by creating media content for local organizations and community members.
What are we doing: We have worked with Blackbird Outreach to produce two films about homelessness in Colorado Springs, and we have plans to work with Planned Parenthood, Colorado Springs Food Rescue, Habitat for Humanity, and others. We aim to create at least one video per block, as well as to collaborate on film screenings, discussions and other forms of media.
Why support us: Colorado Springs has many nonprofits and individuals working toward a better, more equitable city and their stories are worthy of being told. Media content is a great tool for fundraising, especially in the internet age, and our work could contribute to fundraising efforts for these organizations. We, as college film students, are at a particular advantage to be able to lend our services, as we have the time and resources to be able to do so. There are no organizations like ours in Colorado Springs, and nonprofit and other groups are often unable to pay for the media content production that we provide for free.
