About Us

Supported by WarnerMedia and other major donors, Movikarma is a nonprofit in Los Angeles that empowers underrepresented filmmakers and fosters inclusion, representation, and social impact in Hollywood. With high-level relationships across the industry - including with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Netflix, The Sundance Institute, and leading companies, organizations, and award-winning underrepresented talent - Movikarma is transforming Hollywood to become a more inclusive and impactful place.


Movikarma’s Core Activities:

 

Rewriting Hollywood is a dynamic podcast created by Movikarma that focuses on inclusion and social impact in Hollywood. Hosted by Movikarma’s founder Jared Milrad, Rewriting Hollywood has featured interviews with a diverse slate of underrepresented and impact-driven talent, including Academy Award winning screenwriter Tarell McCraney (MOONLIGHT), Tony Award and SAG Award-nominated actress Joaquina Kalukango (ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI), award-winning actor Paul Raci (SOUND OF METAL), Clarke Peters (DA 5 BLOODS) and Esther Moon (MINARI). In these timely, no-holds-barred conversations, Jared, his co-hosts and invited guests discuss ways to transform Hollywood for a new generation of impactful storytellers. 


A Show For A Change Film Festival is a monthly, online festival focused on highlighting social impact filmmakers who are changing the world through the power of story. Launched in 2017, the film festival has worked with over 500 filmmakers globally, awarding projects in four categories each month: Social Impact, Creativity,, Cinematography, and Storytelling. The festival has recognized both narrative and documentary films - long-form and short-form - that address important issues such as racial equity, environmental justice, criminal justice reform, climate change, and animal welfare.


Social Impact, Narrative Storytelling with Underrepresented Filmmakers: As part of our mission to spotlight and empower underrepresented filmmakers, Movikarma produced a two-part docu-series with rising filmmaker Ryan Henry Knight about racial equity, healthcare, voting rights and civic engagement in advance of the U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia in December 2020. With a nonpartisan lens focused on engaging storytelling, Movikarma partnered with The Counter Narrative Project and The New Georgia Project to reach thousands of underserved voters ahead of the election.
