What Are FilmUp Impact Spotlights?

The most impactful videos on the internet. Handpicked films, music videos, commercials and more showcased on the FilmUp blog and thematically paired with a non-profit for impact.

Why do we spotlight impactful films?

We started FilmUp with the mission to create and promote films that move the world in an upward direction. We believe that filmmaking is one of the most influential tools for building our world’s cultural existence. Storytelling on its own is a powerful vehicle but when it’s paired with the techniques of film, we are exposed to perspectives and experiences we may have otherwise never acknowledged or had. Every film has the ability to transcend time. Every filmmaker has the power to change lives. And we want to connect films with actionable change that moves the needle.

Our mission is to empower filmmakers to create stories that leave influential imprints on our human identity and ultimately leave the world a little better than we found it.

How does a film get chosen?

There’s no formal submission process for how to become an Impact Spotlight on FilmUp, and any creator can have their video chosen. 

Since our Curation Team is only human and can’t watch every single video, only a small fraction of provoking masterworks can actually be featured in Impact Spotlights. However, there are a few ways that can help you improve your chances of capturing a curator’s attention with your impactful video.

A good place to start is to make sure that your video description description is clear and piques a viewer’s interest. You can also DM us on the @filmup.co Instagram with Impact Spotlight submissions or suggestions!
