Support Film & Entertainment Soccer Tournament (FEST)

Through the annual industry tournaments and a growing list of activities throughout the year, FEST endeavors to illuminate and deepen the unique relationship between the creative community and game of soccer—in New York City and around the world—giving, where possible, to organizations that champion youth development in the areas of sport and the arts.

FEST has also created a charitable venture called the Young Filmmakers Initiative (click here for more information). 

In the Fall of 2016, the initiative, with the City of New York Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD), Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) and Tribeca Film Festival, to give middle-schoolers throughout NYC the tools and guidance to help realize their creative ambitions through making stories about the beautiful game in the Big Apple — a city with a rich soccer tradition, and a burgeoning global capital for the sport.

As a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, FEST relies, in part, on the support and generosity of the community it represents. Your contribution to FEST, which is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law, will help it grow and diversify its programming in the interest of furthering its core purposes.
