Grassroots Future is a registered charity looking at empowering grassroots movements and building capacity in the refugee and asylum seeker community. We are looking for volunteers to help with the production of a short film (approx 40 min), written by a member of the community in Hong Kong. The film project covers many social issues related to race, judgments based on nationality, stereotypes based on appearance, conflict, humanity, the influence of the media in shaping ignorance towards others. The film will feature talents from all corners of Hong Kong society through acting, music, art and more.

What we have

(1) Briefing call with the Screenwriter/Director and Grassroots Future representative (2) Briefing / pitch deck with an overview of the film project

Why this is important

Our organization would like to help creative people in the refugee community share their stories and creativity with a wider audience, through different media. This is a really special opportunity to help the production of a film which will spotlight social issues and the project will be the first time a film has been written by the community.
