Help us empower Philly youth to define their own narrative through filmmaking!
Big Picture Alliance (BPA) empowers youth to define their own narrative through filmmaking. Our pathway of school, summer and workforce digital media programs support youth ages 12-24 from script-to-screen and from curiosity-to-careers. We aim to uplift & amplify marginalized voices and cultivate a new generation of storytellers who contribute towards a more inclusive, equitable and just society. Since 1994, BPA has served 10,000 Philly youth through 100 partnerships - resulting in over 300 paid apprenticeships, 250 scholarships, 900 films, 80 awards, and countless success stories in school, life and career paths. BPA is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Your tax-deductible donations directly support our work across Philadelphia. We thank you for your support!
BPA’s "Film Fam" monthly giving program is a critical way to support our mission & work. With a monthly commitment of ANY size, your contribution allows us to expand our reach and deepen our impact - providing our youth with sustained access to the tools, mentorship and support they need to thrive!
