ABOUT US: REACT to FILM is a 501c3 nonprofit that leverages the best documentary filmmaking to promote social responsibility and spark civic engagement. Begun as a film series to expose an intimate audience in New York to a critical social issue using the best documentary film on that subject, REACT to FILM has expanded primarily as a platform of educational programs in high schools and colleges across the country with a simple goal: to change the world using the best social issue documentary films!
