Hi. We're Diverso.
We aim to build a student-run film fund.
Created by students and supervised by an industry board, we aim to eliminate the socio-economic risks for young minority filmmakers and democratize filmmaking.
We have gathered a coalition of over 40 Universities from:
Why Film Fund? Why Student-Run?
After months of quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews with industry, we’ve determined that the three main obstacles that young minority filmmakers face are a lack of financing, mentorship and community. A student-run film fund provides solutions to all these problems.
Together, I believe we can solve Hollywood’s diversity problem at its source.
We target the source of the diversity problem by lowering the societal and economic risks for student filmmakers.
We are in the process of building our three industry-advised programs: The Minority List, The Diverso Film Labs, and the Film Fund.
