In May of this year, we found out our organization, Ferasha Films, became an official non-profit organization. Apparently we were official since December 2014 but somehow our acceptance paperwork got lost in the mail and we just continued life as normal wondering if our application was ever accepted. It has been two years after the release of our biggest endeavor so far – The Backyard Philly Project. It has been three years since the conclusion of filming that award-winning documentary and when we first began to discuss the future and possibilities of Ferasha Films. Sometimes the best things require the most patience. So here we are – an official 501(c)3 organization thanks to the donations from our supporters, the hard work of our Board, and the efforts of our team. We want to also say a very special thank you to Stephanie Sikora and D. Keith Brown at Stuckert and Yates in Newtown, PA. They put together all the paperwork and really made things become a reality for us. The future of Ferasha Films is still very much in the hands of our supporters, as we’re calling upon you to decide what our upcoming projects will be.
Ferasha Films is officially launching The Spark Project. Our story began with a spark, and that’s all it takes to create something completely new. Applications are open to anyone who thinks they’ve got a story for us to tell. Whether you are a company or organization serving others, are part of a community or group you feel needs to be better represented and understood, have an inspirational personal story, or really any type of story that you think needs to be told, we want to be the ones to tell it!
To learn more about The Spark Project and how you can share your story with us, please visit www.ferashafilms.com/yourstory. Please see our previous films for an idea of the types of groups we’ve featured and stories we have told. Apply today to see if your story fits with our way of storytelling. We hope to help your spark grow into something bigger.
