We were thrilled to premiere our most recent short film,
Waiting Patient, at the
Global Health Film Festivalin London. Director
Kelly Amis was also invited to present
Changing the Lens: Harnessing the Power of Digital & Social Media to Promote Social Justice.
Waiting Patient shows how a rural hospital in Haiti is expanding access to much needed surgical care. The film was sponsored by
GoPro and the UCSF Medical Center. Read more about GoPro's sponsorship

At the end of the year, we raised
$10K to continue our paid internships in 2019. Every dollar will go to our interns, who acquire professional and production skills while learning about social justice issues.
