Dear Awesome Supporters of JFMS,
I'm very pleased to announce that Justice for My Sister Collective (a project of Community Partners) will soon launch our 3rd edition of our Nuevas Novelas Summer Filmmaking Bootcamp for young women of color and non-binary youth.
We're once again calling on our community to help us raise funds for this unique program that connects industry professionals to young adults in the beginning stages of their career. To make another contribution this year and help us get the word out, please go here: https://goto.gg/34122. We're looking to raise $10,000 by August 16, 2018 to fund the production of three student-led short films.
We're pleased to welcome Program Coordinator Dani Ortiz-Padilla this summer, one of the Collective's original founders in Los Angeles!
Our Nuevas Novelas graduates have had many recent shadowing opportunities on professional film shoots, and even obtained their first paid gigs in the industry by virtue of our mentorship program!
With our work-study program for our participants, we've been able to build more capacity of the organization itself, plus provide leadership and skill development opportunities to our students.
We had a well-attended Board Member Happy Hour last week. If you or someone you know would like to get involved to transform the TV & film industry by training women of color, LGBTQAI+ community and foster youth, please let us know! We'd love to have you partake as part of our leadership team to guide the direction of the organization and our offerings!
