WOOD CHILD AWARDED ROOFTOP FILMMAKER GRANT


BIG thanks to Rooftop Films who awarded Wood Child and Hidden Forest Mother one of their filmmaker grants.

"The Kayla Thomas Filmmaker grant, in commemoration of our dear friend and teammate, will be rewarded every year to one or more Rooftop Films alumni filmmakers to help them to complete a short or feature film that communicates the power of hope, collaboration and togetherness to make positive change. As we were creating this grant we knew we wanted to help new films get made, and particularly to support films that we thought would make Kayla happy."

They gave The Obvious Child a grant a few years back, helping get the film finished and out there. Now they've done it again with Wood Child. Great bunch!
