Recipient: Mise En Scenesters

Mise en Scenesters is a film club and a pop-up movie theater with the goal of providing more opportunities for people to see great films that aren’t likely to ever play a multiplex near them.

We funded these folks to show a series of great films throughout the early part of 2013. Specifically, the UNFoundation paid for film licensing fees and the assorted costs (promotional materials, venue rentals, etc.) that go into putting those events together. These films were a huge success and were well-attended, bringing some great cultural capital to the City of Chattanooga.
