  • Description: "Dedicated to providing thoughtful, inventive entertainment with powerful themes, San Antonio-based Project 36 develops films and plays that entertain, challenge, and inspire our community. By telling compelling narratives about subjects outside the sphere of public consciousness and through partnerships with related non-profits, we enact a more concrete response than we could by solely raising awareness. By doing so, we not only use art to give a voice to the voiceless, but call the community to action by connecting its members with powerful, undiscovered organizations."
