We are seeing the rise of documentaries and videos producing actual social change. We live in an increasingly digital world with tools to mobilize a crowd. Millennials are the most cause-centric generation yet.
We created this festival to promote and celebrate the art of impact storytelling, producing, and campaigning for social impact with our youth and beyond. Combining a traditional student film festival with a powerful online platform built for video-driven social impact campaigns, UPTOGOOD Impact Film Festival asks students to produce and share videos / short films that can catalyze positive social change by highlighting social issues and solutions in their communities—and to use our film festival to amplify that impact.
