Film Competitions For A Cause
The explosion of new social entrepreneurs and Not-Just-For Profit businesses demonstrates that businesses are seeing themselves differently. They are investing in our communities, our future and our humanity. It is clear that businesses now see their roles in community differently. Soul Proprietors aims to change the way communities see business!
Our mission is to show the faces behind small businesses making big differences in the world. By providing real examples of how ordinary people do extraordinary things, we aim to prompt a new generation of social entrepreneurs, community leaders and socially conscious individuals.
3 Teams - 5 Days - 1 Grand Prize
This competitive challenge is designed to engage the community of every city it visits. Three film crews are paired by random drawing to one of three local business owners who are giving back and making the world a better place. Teams have just 5 days to create a 5-7 minute broadcast quality video. All three entries are voted on by a panel of local judges. The winning team is awarded $5,000 at an open screening!
Competitions with a Cause!
This competition does more than acknowledge great short films with cash awards and trophies, it also raises funds for charity. One hundred percent of proceeds from the screening event goes to the charitable program associated with the first place film's business owner! Everybody wins.
