Films With A Cause is committed to working with productions that seek to improve the representation of underrepresented and misrepresented communities behind and in front of the camera. Meaningful and authentic representation is possible when we open ourselves up to a journey of ongoing learning.
We offer consulting services that encourage ethical storytelling practices for a higher entertainment experience. We believe that the more specific the representation of a community can be, the more universal the story becomes. At Films With A Cause, we believe that to be the most effective specificity consultants must possess three key areas of knowledge. Our in-house expert consultants draw from lived experience, historical context and the necessary industry knowledge to deliver the best possible results for your production.
