New Voice Rally Winners, TableTalk, Talk Season 1 Premiere
August 11, 2017
When we launched the New Voice Rally in 2016, one of the things we were most excited for was when the rally was over. Not because we don’t love our rallies (we do, check out our Hometown Heroes happening right now), but because we know the rally is just part of the journey for the filmmakers...and seeing where they go next is a joy for the entire Seed&Spark family.
1 to Watch, 1 to Fund: Week of August 7, 2017
August 8, 2017
Perhaps now more than ever, it’s important that entertainment act as a bridge that connects us to cultures, ideas, and perspectives different than our own. Through the sharing of stories we’re allowed glimpses into the nuances and unique experiences in the lives of others. With the rise of ISIS and the latest issuing of a travel ban, the current political climate has directly impacted the everyday lives of many Muslim Americans. The two films we’re spotlighting this week illustrate the effect the current political climate has had on this community by creating an increasing sense of fear shared by their Muslim protagonists. Both thrillers demonstrate what it feels like to be targeted, hunted and attacked for who you are.

We have a saying at Seed&Spark: Independent doesn’t mean alone. And that rings especially true when we talk about our partners, those organizations and brands who stand with us and work side-by-side to help filmmakers build sustainable careers and to increase representation in entertainment.
