Vanishing Act (Applause for a Cause)

Who are we?

Applause for a Cause is a philanthropic student film 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 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, The Helsings, which is now participating in film festivals around the country.


Our Project

This year, we have chosen to produce Vanishing Act, which is written by Northwestern student Taylor Beck. The proceeds from the red carpet premiere of the film will be donated to Portlight to aid in their mission of inclusive disaster relief for those with disabilities.


How you can help!

We need all the help we can get to produce Vanishing Act! 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 to benefit a great cause!
