Support Films for Social Justice

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.


Choose a giving level


Help we get on the road!

Documentary filmmaking involves a lot of driving to and from locations, and every little bit of fuel helps us get where we need to go.


Help us get cables!

XLR cables help us get the sound we need to tell people's stories in their own words.


Help us buy lens!

Vintage Prime Lens work beautifully for shooting interviews and b-roll.


Help us buy filter!

A variable neutral density filter is essential for filming in the sun or achieving those perfect blurred backgrounds behind our subjects.


Help us buy a monopod!

A monopod would help us steady our shots, necessary for the unpredictable art that is shooting documentary film.


Help us capture clean audio!

A lavalier microphone system would help us capture clean audio of our interview subjects without the background noise of the public spaces our work often takes us.


Help us take better sound!

The Zoom F8 would allow us to take our sound to the next level with its eight XLR inputs, backup channel capabilities, and in-depth audio level monitoring.


Help us buy our ideal camera!

Our ideal camera, the GH5S, would allow us to shoot beautiful, cinematic footage for our clients, and we'd no longer have to rely on often unavailable film department cameras.
