Kids In The Spotlight

Empowering Foster Youth Through Filmmaking

Since 2009, Kids In The Spotlight (KITS) has created over 80 films with more than 750 youth from foster care,

where they are given full agency to tell their stories, their way, by writing, casting & starring in their own short films.

Each year culminates in our annual KITS Film Awards,
celebrating their films & accomplishments 
in our version
of the Academy Awards. 


Join us November 6th at the Orpheum Theatre

for the KITS Film Awards 2021!

Please watch this recap from 2019's KITS Film Awards at Paramount Studios. You can make an impact for the youth we serve by watching their films on our KITS Channel on IndieFlix!
