The Reel Deal Film Festival, our largest project, offers in-school field trips at local public high schools, and seek to show young people that big dreams are not for someone else, but for them to entertain, too. We awarded our first two $500 scholarships to rising freshman in 2022, and would like to expand to 5 scholarships this year, as well as continue that $500 grant for all four years for the existing recipients undergraduate educations, providing they stay in the field. We encourage thoughtful, introspective content, designed to share ideas, including the faith based ones so frequently excluded from commercial content. We look for dialgoue seekers, to engage productively, respectfully and with a mind toward effective, not sensational content.
