Filmmakers document regional organizations and events

The main objective behind the Lexington Film League’s annual Doers contest – combining the storytelling power of film with individuals and groups committed to doing good within their communities – makes for such a natural marriage that it may have Lexingtonians wondering why nothing like this existed in Kentucky before last year.
“The Doers Video contest grew out of a desire to have a contest that paired filmmakers with non-profit organizations and have filmmakers tell inspiring stories,” says founder of the Lexington Film League and the Doers Video Contest, Kiley Lane. “The overall goal is to offer an opportunity for filmmakers to actively participate in an LFL event, for the filmmakers to build their portfolios, and to connect filmmakers to their community and the community to their filmmakers.”
