The Reel Change Film Frenzy will use the power of crowdsourced community funding to support the creation of 10 cause-driven films. Filmmakers and nonprofits will have one week to produce a film that is 10 minutes or less in length and works to support the mission of the nonprofit. At the end of one week’s time we will screen the films as they compete for prizes and bragging rights.
