In 2012, an exciting new division was added to Celebrity Films called “Films For Good.” Using the same storytelling techniques and production skills that earned us an Emmy Award, we’ve decided to specifically focus on making movies about Non-Profits and Charities. This venture has proven to be a successful model for raising awareness, attracting new donors, and involving existing donors in the production of the film. Bobby Davidowitz, whose work has been featured on Universal Sports Network and the Biography Channel, has come on board to head this project. His writing and production expertise bring a fresh new angle to our movie making.
