The funds are given to one film’s subjects or filmmakers for achievements in selfless social impact. The film The Interrupters was selected as the recipient this year. The film followed three representatives of Chicago CeaseFire who worked to protect their communities from violence. The film shows the effect of the interrupters’ work on their own lives, as well as onthe youth and families they work with.
According to the press release, CeaseFire plans to share some of the funds with Aim4Peace, a new Kansas City-based organization that has a similar model to CeaseFire.
