Community Supported Film (CSF)!

Greentopia | FILM believes in our community and in showcasing the positive changes, projects and people that are often not covered in more mainstream news and media channels. Through the incredible generosity of local film makers, Greentopia | FILM has been able to produce 3 short documentaries a year for the past 2 years. In 2014, we received funding from NYSCA (New York State Council on the Arts) to actually commission the films, offering a $1,000 stipend and festival film passes to each of the 3 selected film makers.

Greentopia | FILM has selected the films and will soon commission the production of 3 short documentaries to be part of the film festival March 17-21, 2015. The films have been selected and they will be presented at the Film Festival this spring.

All Community Supported Films (CSFs) tell a story of something happening in the Greater Rochester area that embraces the concept of sustainability or community building in some way. We look for positive success stories – no docs trying to expose some injustice.

Here are examples of films produced over the past two festivals.
