Are you ready to make an impact in your community? You can APPLY for the 2023 Spark Impact Program NOW!
As a solar powered cinema network we believe in the power of energy. Young people face great challenges – from rising unemployment rates to the knock-on effects of our incredible energy crisis. At Sunshine Cinema we keep the lights on by working with young people who are inspired, energetic and want to use their voices to inspire action and change in their community.
We are currently accepting applications for 20 young South Africans aged between 21-34 years old in 2023. We are looking for applicants who want to use the power of film to inspire dialogue and join our mobile solar cinema network of over 80 Ambassadors.
This 10-month accelerator programme enables participants to improve their impact facilitation skill set with a 6 month online course with The University of Cape Town’s Centre for Film and Media Studies; access to gig work in the digital marketing industry, experience in hosting free community film screenings, facilitating dialogues, and potentially develop their own media enterprises to become financially independent.
A contract will be signed at the start of the programme
