The Lights. Camera. Help. Film Festival is the first film festival dedicated entirely to nonprofit and cause-driven films. This three-day event gives films-for-a-cause the attention they deserve by putting them up on the big screen in a theater setting. We award cash prizes to the causes represented in the winning films.
As a nonprofit event, it's free to submit your cause-driven film and all of the proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the winners of our judges prizes.
We're looking for the best PSAs, short films and documentary features that focus on good. If your favorite cause has a film that highlights the work being done to make the world a better place, we want/need to see it.

I just wanted to say that I think your website is amazing. I am a beginner with an idea, and the info and articles on your website are easy to understand and answer many questions I have. I can't wait to start filming!

I am a professional filmmaker, and I applaud this site for detailing the ABC's of documentary filmmaking. It serves as my own checklist as I continue making my own films... Thanks!
