On Thursday ~ Saturday, May 17th, 18th, & 19th,
The FILManthropy Society presents:
2012 FILManthropy Festival
“Open Your Eyes”

This unique event is a canvas for instigating and inspiring change. This innovative Festival showcases films that inspire, educate, raise awareness and motivate, so that audiences may open their minds and their hearts to creating a better world. Filmmakers selected to participate in this pioneering event vie for "The Torch Awards," and the opportunity to support their favorite charity. Upon submitting, filmmakers are asked to select a charity close to them for which they hope to raise funds and awareness. The Festival's net proceeds are split three ways, donated to the charities supported by the Torch Award-winning filmmakers in the following three categories: Best Short, Best Feature and Audience Favorite.  

FILManthropy FESTIVAL – Open Your Eyes

The FILManthropy Festival is a means to use, support and promote film as a way to help make the world a better place while, at the same time, also honoring the very medium in which those issues are presented.
