An Update From the IndieFlix Foundation

What are you most thankful for this year?

We are thankful for the good work and positive impact of the IndieFlix Foundation which raises funds to bring social impact programs to underserved schools. This year their big focus has been anxiety in schools. Here’s a little more about IndieFlix Foundation from founder Scilla Andreen.


Dear Friends,

I believe film is one of the most powerful mediums on the planet and we at the Foundation feel stories can have positive, life-changing impact when followed up with conversation. I’d like to share a little bit about what we do and what we support at IndieFlix Foundation. As we pulled the data to share with you I found myself in awe of how much has been accomplished this year; thanks to generous gifts, support, introductions, feedback and the hard work of many who assist in getting the word out. We are seeing and feeling the positive impact the projects we support are having in schools and communities across the country as well as abroad. They are reaching kids as young as 7 years old and seniors who are discovering for the first time that what they’ve felt their whole lives has a name; it’s called anxiety and it’s treatable.

Finding Kind a film about girl bullying has almost completed it’s 14th Founders Tour. Angst has booked school screenings spanning 20 countries and we just held test screenings of LIKE, a documentary about the impact of social media on our lives. Lastly, we’ve just created and launched the Creative Coping Toolkit (CCT), an interactive companion program designed to normalize and easily keep the conversation going about anxiety, social media challenges, digital addiction and mindfulness in schools and at home.

This year some of the projects we have supported have a combined reach of over 600K students and families as young as 7 years old. Thanks to you, we are changing lives for the better. These projects model conversations about mental health, bullying and empowerment. They teach coping tools, share resources and ultimately open hearts and minds to build a stronger social, emotional community.

Below is a brief update of some of the projects we have supported.

Thank you and happiest of holidays.

Sincerely,

Scilla Andreen
Founder IndieFlix Foundation & the IndieFlix Foundation Board


Finding Kind Still Screening in Hundreds Of Schools

In October, Finding Kind a documentary about girl bullying embarked on it’s 14th Founders Assembly Tour with filmmakers Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson. Since 2009, Finding Kind has had thousands of screenings around the world. This was the first project we supported and its mind-boggling to think here we are 8 years later and Finding Kind is still having an impact in schools around the world. It’s a testament to Lauren and Molly and their dedication to help eradicate bullying through their foundation Kind Campaign.

Psychologist and author, Dr. Joe Dilley says in response to LIKE,

“…I am shocked at how moved, upset, and compelled to act I feel as a result of having seen this documentary. That LIKE will inspire you is an understatement. Quite simply, it’s the most important film I’ve ever seen.”

Read more about The Bully Factor


About us: IndieFlix Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that promotes and supports social impact films to create social change in the world. We maintain a roster of several film projects. Some are in the early stages of development or production, while others are completed and available for public screenings. Once the films are completed, we support the screening of them year-round in public settings for communities across the United States. In most cases, we work with K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and community-based organizations to screen these films for their students, parents, and other appropriate populations. And while some schools and organizations can afford to pay for the full cost of a screening (which includes use of IFF’s curriculum materials as well as facilitation support for Q&A sessions with attendees), many – especially those serving low-income communities – cannot. IndieFlix Foundation uses grant funding and individual donations to help subsidize the costs and make screenings free to these schools and organizations.
