The CCT is a film and evidence-based mental health literacy program that promotes safety and belonging in schools, corporations, organizations, and families. Comprised of four powerful films (Angst, LIKE, The Upstanders, and RACE to Be Human) and a comprehensive learning curriculum, the CCT is an evolving resource essential for ongoing mental health support.
The RACE to Be Human CCT is a film and evidence-based program focusing on the importance of respect and trust as shared through the lens of youth, families, mental health experts, employers, and educators. It also shares how we can promote curiosity, self-reflection, integrity, and empathy through positive home, school, and work conversations.
Taking a look behind the headlines of #MeToo and Time’s Up NEVERTHELESS follows the intimate stories of seven individuals who have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace or school context. From a writer's assistant on a top TV show to a tech CEO and 911 dispatcher, the film shines a light on the ways in which we can shift our culture and rebuild.
The Upstanders CCT is a film and evidence-based program about resilience, belonging, and the power of connection to end bullying. The program highlights new laws and programs already reducing bullying in schools and shows us how we can learn to make a difference together to create change.
The LIKE CCT is a film and evidence-based program that explores the impact of social media on our lives and the role of technology in our lives. The goal of the program is to show that social media is a tool and social platforms are a space to connect, share, and care. The program provides practical tools to disrupt our patterns to create a healthy balance with technology.
The Angst CCT is a 43-minute film and evidence-based program that looks at anxiety, its causes, and effects, and what we can do about it. With a particular focus on youth, adolescents, educators, and families. The film features interviews with kids and young adults who suffer or have suffered from anxiety, what they’ve learned, and how to get help.
Screenagers is a feature-length documentary in production that explores the question—what is a healthy amount of screen time? Impactful Fund, formerly iNDIEFLIX Foundation, along with others, contributed funds and support towards the completion of the film and the creation of the movement around the film.
Imagine a young woman attending her first college party, her mind set on cutting loose and shedding the “shy girl” identity she’s struggled with since high school. At the same party, an awkward, but slightly charming young man is hoping for a similar reinvention. Add booze and misinterpreted signals, and two different stories emerge out of what happens during the night’s events.
In 2014, we launched our second major film with a kick-off tour for The Empowerment Project, a documentary film about female empowerment. This film has reached over 32,000 people at over 200 events worldwide.
Finding Kind, created by Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson (pictured left), is a documentary about girl bullying. It has screened in more than 900 schools and community groups and continues to tour worldwide.
Impactful Fund, formerly IndieFlix Foundation. was created in 2011 by Scilla Andreen, CEO and Founder of iMPACTFUL.CO
“We support stories that inspire social change and positive action, especially where young people and women are involved. My personal goal is to effect change within one minute of viewing and to offer free resources and tools to create, balance, human connection, empowerment and long-lasting impact. And that’s exactly what movies like RACE, Angst, LIKE, The Upstanders, The Empowerment Project and Finding Kind achieve.”

“Finding a way to stop girl-against-girl “crime” from happening is something that has been on my heart since I was twelve years old.”
