Kids In The Spotlight

Empowering Foster Youth Through Filmmaking

Since 2009, Kids In The Spotlight (KITS) has created over 85 films with more than 850 youth impacted by foster care,

where they are given full agency to tell their stories, their way, by writing, casting & starring in their own short films.
Then, e
ach year culminates in our annual KITS Film Awards, the first Saturday of November, celebrating their films on the
silver screen 
in our version of the Academy Awards. 


 You can make an impact for the youth we serve by watching their films on our KITS Channel on IndieFlix!
