Flicks4Good: Non-Profit Video Contest

Giving back for a good cause

Are you involved with a Calgary-based non-profit that could benefit from a promotional marketing video?

We love contributing to our supportive community and we are grateful for the opportunity to hone our storytelling skills. In the spirit of collaborating with local organizations, Chicflicks invites all local non-profit or charitable foundations to apply for our Flicks4Good program.

Every year, one organization is gifted a professional promotional video. Video is critically important for building awareness, donor support and inspiring others. A short, compelling video on your website and social media pages will tell your story and share why your work is important.

The process is simple:

Step 1:

Shoot a short video presenting your organization, team, and mission to us. We’re interested in what makes you tick! Highlight your mission and what your group is doing to educate, inspire, motivate, or otherwise serve your community. Share the most memorable story from your organization.

Step 2:

Upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo. Send us an email to dana(at)chicflicks.ca with the subject line “Flicks4Good Application”. In the email, tell us how a promo video would be used and include the link to your video.

Step 3:

Starting July 1st, use your social media channels to share the link to the contest page so your supporters can vote for your organization. Voting will close July 15th. Use the hashtag #Flicks4Good.

Step 4:

Keep an eye on your email. Winner will be announced August 7, 2018.

One winner will be chosen based on creativity, content and voting scores. Applications now being accepted until June 30, 2018. Filming will happen in August or September. Completed promotional video will be up to 2 minutes in length.
