Cause Film Festival began in 2014, offering filmmakers the opportunity to screen videos they have made that support a cause. Going into its third year, 100% of the profits from the festival go to the winning charity. The festival’s Director, Yolandi Franken is a strong supporter of charities and places high value on helping others in the community. The best way to help others is to create awareness of their situations. Sometimes pure awareness can be a prevention!
