Kids in the Spotlight 

Our partnership with ‘Kids In The Spotlight’ has brought a new depth to our support for filmmakers and storytellers. ‘KITS’ gives L.A. foster youth the opportunity to be seen and heard, to work in a team, to develop their talents, and to work through trauma… all by the power of film. They run 10-15 week courses in filmmaking, where industry veterans coach and support youth from writing a script to casting, acting, producing, filming with a professional crew, and editing. We are thrilled to host the ‘Kids In The Spotlight’ channel, showcasing 30+ shorts made by these extraordinary young people, and to support KITS in its live events. You can find these films on indieflix.com
