Every donation has a direct impact on the Cause Film Festival's mission. We rely on donations, film submission fees and Awards Night ticket sales to run the festival and to have enough left over to donate to the winning film's charity.
Your contribution will help us to keep this non-profit film festival running and reach more people to help spread messages of good causes.
