 MAKE A FILM FOUNDATION 


"Make A Film Foundation (MAFF) grants film wishes to children with serious or life-threatening medical conditions, helping them to create short film legacies by teaming them with noted actors, directors, and writers. We believe the art of filmmaking is not only healing and therapeutic but also offers hope and builds self-esteem."
