Thrive's annual fundraising event
All proceeds from our annual Film Festival go straight back into our community! Funds will bolster our housing fund that provides application fees, rental and deposit assistance for those in need.
Enter your film!
Last year's inaugural film festival was held in the beautiful Tower Theatre, where we showcased films that highlighted stories about the working class, housing rights, and equity.
This year we want the We Are Home film festival to reflect new voices, visions, and representations that we could not access through our own searches. We Are Home seeks to showcase films from new and upcoming filmmakers that center their work around finding home and belonging in ways that are not traditionally represented: those living in poverty, those experiencing homelessness, the working class, those seeking community in alternative ways, populations of color, indigenous populations, etc.
We prefer that the films reflect communities and individuals in the United States, particularly the West Coast, but are open to any! Please let us know if you have any questions or need clarification.
