Charity Film Awards gets a boost from The Rooftop

Charities now have until 31 October to enter the Charity Film Awards as The Rooftop has been announced as the Award’s media partner.

Now in its third year, the Charity Film Awards celebrates the power of modern film-making for not for profit communication, awareness building and fundraising.

The campaign aims to demonstrate that a charitable video can inspire, incite to action, excite and change behaviour. It raises awareness for the charities that enter, promotes the message of the films and offers a facility to attract donations.

The Awards are free to enter and even free to attend for those charities who make it through to the final stages.

Funded by sponsorship and a collection of patrons, the organisers are encouraging interested parties to get involved in their aim to find the Charity Film of the Year in 2019.

Charities and Community Interest Companies wishing to enter should do so online at before the deadline on 31 October.

After the nomination process, there will be a public vote of all the films entered, which will determine the final shortlist, who will then be judged by a panel of experts. The winners will then be announced at a gala event at a prestigious venue in London in April 2019.

This year, The Rooftop – the new home for news worth shouting about – will be the media partner for the Awards. This means that winners and finalists will all receive guaranteed media coverage for their entries.

With over 100,000 people a week viewing content from The Rooftop, which is funded by Campaign Collective, Simon Francis from the Collective commented:

The Charity Film Awards demonstrate just how vital film is in getting campaigners’ amazing stories told in an engaging way.

We look forward to seeing all the entries and featuring them on The Rooftop and I would urge all charities to consider entering – it’s free after all!

Previous winners include The National Autistic Society, The British Hedgehog Preservation Society, Friends of Richmond Park, Prostate Cancer UK, RADLD, Heart 4 More Foundation, Sumatran Orangutan Society, Movember, Teenage Cancer Trust, Save The Children, The Loss Foundation and St John Ambulance.
