Help Fund Post Production

It's a good day to support a BIPOC film!   

Film Summary

Nepantla depicts the restrictions placed on U.S. immigrants who want to temporarily leave the country to visit sick family members. This experience is relevant now more than ever. The goal of our film is to raise awareness of the hardships of immigration and families separated by legal obstacles. Our team strives to make a change in our community using the medium of film.

What We Need 

100% of your donations will be used for the following:

  • Camera Department (camera & lighting equipment, etc.)

  • Art Department (wardrobe, hair & make-up, production design, props, etc.)

  • Casting (talent, background actors, studio teacher, etc.)

  • Location Funds (permits, transportation, insurance, etc.)

  • Catering (to feed our hard-working cast & crew!)

  • Post Production (editing, color correcting, etc.)

  • Covid Mitigation (Covid Compliance Officer, PPE, cleaning supplies, etc)

  • & more!

Contributions to Nepantla are 100% tax deductible. CSUN is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization.

The Impact

Based on true eventsNepantla is an opportunity to shed light on mixed status households, where some family members are citizens and others are not, a family dynamic not commonly depicted in film and television. Once completed, our film will be submitted to various festivals (domestic and international) to reach a wide audience to share the important message conveyed in this story. 

With your contribution at hand, we can expand on the story of Nepantla and leave audiences with a new perspective—that being the perspective of the immigrant community who make up over a third of LA county's population. 

Risks & Challenges

With COVID-19 restrictions in place, we must abide by many more rules than in the past. In addition to production and post production cost, our team is seeking help to cover the new costs of COVID mitigation.

The health and safety during this pandemic is a number one priority while in the production of this film. It is extremely important to us and by contributing to funding these additional items, we will be able to provide and ensure safety among every single person on the set. To ensure this, strict rules and regulations will be applied while on set and PPE will be given out in ample amounts to avoid exposure. We will be following guidelines recommended by the CDC and SAG-AFTRA.


Our store sells items such as shirts, hoodies, crewnecks, tote bags, cloth face masks, mugs and even baby onesies! They come in all different sizes and colors for all.
