Applause for a Cause Presents: The Helsings
Applause for a Cause is a student philanthropic production organization that writes, produces, directs, edits, and premieres a feature-length film each year. The proceeds from our films' screenings are then donated to that year’s selected Chicago-based charity. It is our mission to use our love of filmmaking to make a difference in our local community. Past films have been a huge success, including last year's production, "Dead Tongues", which is now participating in film festivals around the country.
This year, we have chosen to produce "The Helsings" written by Northwestern student Taylor Beck. The proceeds from the red carpet premiere of the film will be donated to Apna Ghar, a social services nonprofit that provides services and advocates across immigrant communities to end gender violence.
To produce "The Helsings", we need all the help we can get! Simple tasks such as acquiring costumes, paying actors a fair wage, and upgrading our old and broken equipment are difficult to achieve without the necessary resources. With your help, Applause for a Cause can make a great film for a great cause!
