Brave New Films

Here's another great outfit that could use your help.

"Robert Greenwald...leads a small band of filmmakers dedicated to unnerving political and corporate powers with righteous anger and quick-cut editing"

Dear Friend --
It is with great pride that I share with you a profile of Brave New Films and our founder, Robert Greenwald, that appeared in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times. For the past ten years the staff at Brave New Films has passionately explored and investigated a number of social justice issues. The results of this work have been seen by millions of people and it has all been made possible by your support. Not only the money you have donated to us over these ten years, but the help you have given in sharing these films/short videos/stories with friends and family. Equally important have been the actions you have taken to change the status quo and to make a difference.

Please read the article here
We also could not have accomplished this work without being inspired by the actions of people like the Koch Brothers, the management of Fox ‘News’, the greedy corporate honchos at Wal-Mart and the hundreds of other bad actors in the world. So we thank those entities for being so egregiously out of line that they have created a strong community of people who will not allow their rights to be trampled on. We will continue to educate the public about their behavior and activate people to fight back.
Ten years ago I remember watching ‘OutFoxed’ and making sure everyone I knew saw it as well. After following BNF as a supporter, I was fortunate enough to get a job here 8 years ago (in fact, 8 years ago today!). This July BNF celebrates its’ 10 year anniversary with a free re-release of ‘OutFoxed’ which will include a special short doc covering what has happened since the film exposed Fox’s true intentions.

Please help us to continue doing this work for another 10 years by donating $10 a month in honor of our anniversary. ‘Unmanned’ was produced because of your donations, and every project we do is only possible because of you. With your help we will continue to expose the bad guys, investigate social justice issues and activate the audience to make a difference.
Thank you,
Jim Miller
Executive Director
and the latest film, Unmanned: America's Drone Wars
