MAFF MISSION

The Make A Film Foundation provides an opportunity for young people diagnosed with critical or terminal illness to use the media as a powerful tool for self-expression and communication by creating five-minute film legacies. Pairing participants with noted directors, writers, actors and producer mentors, we provide them with the tools, resources, and guidance to reclaim the media and give them a voice.

Young people facing illness and long-term hospitalization naturally feel marginalized from the world. Many spend vast amounts of time watching television, experiencing realities they may never share. Make a Film Foundation provides these young people an opportunity to reclaim the media as a tool for creative expression and personal empowerment. At Make a Film Foundation we believe that creativity and self-expression are innately therapeutic.
