Wow. After a year of planning, we pulled off our first annual Chicago International Social Change Film Festival. I wanted to thank my co-founder, Todd Belcore, for sticking this out with me from Day 1. We had an amazing opening night and survived all of the curveballs thrown at us. I also wanted to thank the filmmakers for their excellent work, and the positive buzz from the attendees. Special thanks to everyone that “liked”, shared, donated, volunteered, presented, attended, and sent over positive energy for our film festival. I will say, this has (by far) been the most intense eight-week stretch I’ve ever experienced. A skeleton crew playing offense and defense at the same time. I was exhausted, but inspired by the opportunity to do this all over again, and make it bigger, better, and maximize the impact for the community. Now, it’s time to double-down my efforts on 21st Century Youth Project , Cíbola , and a couple other projects. Thanks everyone for the support.
Here’s some of the press we received:
