Vision: Nonprofits have greater social impact when they are empowered by effective storytelling. Stone Soup Films was founded in 2008 as a nonprofit production company that builds the capacity of worthy organizations by developing a probono communications strategy represented in a professional promotional film.
We combine the assets of collaboration, mentorship, education, and community service by joining the volunteer efforts of hundreds of expert and novice filmmakers. Our goal is to tell the real-life stories of how local groups are transforming the lives of individuals in need. We help organizations tell their stories by going to the individuals they serve, and letting those clients’ stories of transformation be emblematic of the organization’s important work.
There is no doubt that good storytelling can make all the difference in their ability to connect with the target audience, whether it be for fundraising, information or visibility purposes. Any nonprofit serving the people of Washington, DC that does not have a current film or substantial communications budget is invited to apply for a Stone Soup film. The process includes developing a communications strategy and a marketing and distribution plan for the finished film.
If you have professional film experience or want to get involved on any aspect of production, please join us as a volunteer! Student filmmakers with an interest in serving the community are invited to apply for a formal internship.
