The Barebones Script 2 Screen and Movie Biz Conference along with Barebones International Independent
Film Festival organizers and Darkwood Film Arts Institute are inviting interested media producers, writers, actors,
etc. along with concerned and compassionate citizens to join the newly formed organization Independent Film Makers Against Child Abuse.
The organization will actively work
to lobby independent film producers to get involved with local and national
organizations such as the Child Abuse Network, CASA(Court Appointed Special Advocates), Child
Abuse Prevention Partnership Programs, Battered Persons Advocacy, Big Brother and Sister Programs as well as volunteering
in producing local and national PSAs for the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
The organization will also
work with organizations who seek to educate young parents on child rearing and provide emotional
and spiritual support to those parents. Where requested the organization will look for volunteers to assist local law enforcement
as well as abuse intervention groups.
As members of Independent Film Makers Against Child Abuse, The Script 2
Screen Film Festival and Moviebiz Conference and Barebones International Independent Film Festival producers
have pledged ten percent of all ticket sales to CAN. The festivals will provide booths at each festival for the
Child Abuse Network to accept direct donations and DFAI will wave all tuition and meal fees to the DFAI Moviemaking Camps
for students the Child Abuse Network recommends.
DFAI, along with S2S and BBIIFF will also sponsor
a series of special celebration events on October 8th, National Childrens Day and invite interested organizations and
individuals to join in remembering and celebrating our most precious gifts to our future, our children.
is no cost to join Film Makers Against Child Abuse, but our focus is to be a volunteer organization of doing, not talking.
We want to help existing organizations reach their goals and fulfill their missions while we cast new eyes on ways to
help families heal and children grow.
With so many of these organizations we have only a few hands doing a lot.
With your help we can add many hands doing a little, hopefully making an impact and maybe reversal of a worsening national
