The Kayla Thomas Filmmaker Grant


Click here to contribute

To be awarded to one or more Rooftop Films alumni filmmakers to help them to complete a short or feature film that communicates the power of  hope, collaboration and togetherness to make positive change. This grant is in commemoration of our dear friend and teammate Kayla Thomas. Each year when we award this grant we will be reminded of her and of how she made our lives more beautiful and helped us to create special moments. She made our burdens lighter and this grant is one small way in which we can emulate her and do the same for others.

Rooftop Films will donate $1,000 towards this new filmmaker grant and any money that we raise from this campaign up to $5,000 will also go towards this new grant. We will be collecting donations for The Kayla Thomas Filmmaker Grant starting Friday, November 18 through Wednesday, November 30. We will then select and announce the grant winner in December.

 

Thank you for your support and helping us remember this talented, kind and lovely young woman.
