Casa Noble Supports Project:Involve

Project:Involve is Film Independent's signature diversity program, dedicated to increasing cultural diversity in the film industry by cultivating the careers of under-represented filmmakers. The program, which runs from October through June, selects filmmakers from culturally diverse backgrounds and filmmaking tracks. The Fellows are paired one-on-one with a mentor from the film industry. In addition to the mentorship, the Fellows also attend filmmaking workshops, community screenings, and receive career development assistance.
During the nine-month program, the Fellows were assigned a 3-minute short film project. They work in pairs to develop and shoot a short film that incorporates the concept of diversity in our every day life.
Special guest Cuba Gooding Jr. led an inspirational speech at the lavish winner's announcement celebration at the "W" Hotel on September 10th 2009 sponsored by Casa Noble Tequila. Various industry celebrities (listed below) hosted the event in an effort to show thier support as well as Don Cheadle (Ocean's 11) and Shohreh Aghdashloo (X-Men) shown below.
