International Premiere
We were thrilled to premiere our most recent short film, Waiting Patient, at the Global Health Film Festival in 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 here.

You can also watch an interview with Kelly at the festival here and a highlights reel here. Stay tuned for information about future screenings in Boston, Glasgow and elsewhere!
Supporting Up-and-Coming Filmmakers
In 2018, we incorporated paid interns into our ongoing feature film production in Oakland and into the production of this inspiring short video for the SEO Scholars of San Francisco. (They also help with social media!).

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.

If you'd like to support this effort, please donate to the Oakland Promise Project here or use this form to donate by check.
All donations are tax-deductible thanks to our fiscal sponsor, the International Documentary Association.

Thank you to those who have already donated! We ♥ you!
