Your gift will:

  • Build scholarships for emerging BIPOC/disabled/LGBTQ+ artists and diverse works by all artists.
  • Help us maintain our credit collective initiative CAVAA3.
  • Create quantitative analysis tools on equal representation in the entertainment industry for public use and research.
  • Help us build initiatives to promote equal representation in the entertainment industry.
  • Help an artist’s project reach the public eye when the industry has ignored their message.

Asian, Black, Indigenous,  Latino, Pacific Islanders, Disabled1, LGBTQ+, and Women artists/performers have yet to reach proportional representation within the entertainment industry, but there have been gains in specific areas, including film leads and overall cast diversity2.

Our mission is to elevate this emerging but stumbling representation, help these artists excel, and make their entrance into the industry a seamless one.

  1. Disabled Artist:  At the SFS, after much research, we currently align with ‘identity-first language’. If this is uncomfortable, please do not hesitate to contact us with your thoughts. We’d be happy to explain why we went this direction. When working with individuals, we will always use what that person prefers, however, as a general rule, we do not use ‘person first language’ when addressing people on our website.
