Made in LASpread the Word

Outreach Partners

Partners of Made in L.A. are national, regional or local organizations that would like to be associated with the film and all the activities and resources that will be generated in conjunction with our outreach campaign. We're asking our allies to help get the word out about Made in L.A., to raise awareness among your affiliates that it can be a useful tool to highlight the importance of your work, to use it in your organization, and to consider hosting screenings in communities where you work. As an outreach partner, your organization will be listed here, you will have access to special fundraising opportunities using the film, we will post relevant publications you may create, and we will list your campaigns in this website.

If you would like to become an outreach partner, or want to let us know about your organization to see if a partnership might be appropriate, please contact us.
