Our Mission
Filmmakers for Tomorrow Foundation (FFTF) is a
Washington, DC based (501c3) non-profit organization that provides young aspiring filmmakers with educational and financial resources.  FFTF's mission is to encourage and support diverse artistic and cinematic expression of American life among young filmmakers.  Through our grant program and youth-oriented projects, FFTF is developing the next generation of local filmmakers ages 16-25.  FFTF also seeks to establish a network of artists, professionals, and educators as mentors to young filmmakers to help sharpen their artistic talents.

FFTF is committed to providing local public high school, college and university film students with access to funding, equipment, education, and training.  FFTF also develops and supports youth-led film projects that reflect America's diversity and that of the Washington, DC metro community.

FFTF has completed our second film Broken Records.  During our 2009 Summer Film Project, our Young Aspiring Filmmaker, Jonathan K.W.

Broken Records was written by American University graduate, Nick Shupper, who is the winner of our 2009 Screenplay Competition.  We are submitting Broken Records to local and national film festivals to bring recognition to our young aspiring filmmakers.
