Making a change through the power of one film
“Film can promote the idea of change without any political message whatsoever but in its form and language can tell people that they can change their lives and contribute to progressive changes in the world.”
~ Wim Wenders
Our hope is to expand this socially innovative model across the country. In order to carry out our dream we have identified the strategic direction, goals, priorities and actions over the next three years in order to establish, sustain and grow Reel Causes Society. The following is a high-level overview of a more detailed internal strategic plan.
If we would like to know what is going on, we could go to a movie. What we could do is increase the contribution of our movies to inform, to create conversation, and to excite interest in ideas and opportunities.
