The Films

Our inaugural production, TELL YOUR CHILDREN was completed in early 2017 and is now in festival submissions before it will be released. In the meantime, please peruse the site to see who we are and peek at all the progress with our first poetry short project.

CONTRIBUTE

We are still raising some funds for TELL YOUR CHILDREN that will assist with festival submission fees and publicity. If you are moved to contribute, we thank you! Every small amount really does add up!

TELL YOUR CHILDREN is produced by THE NORTHWEST RENAISSANCE, a non-profit (501c3) literary organization. All contributions made to this project are tax-deductible.
