something higher to reach for, something new to make for others, 
makes each day infinitely precious"

What Do We do?

Spark Creative Works Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) theatre & creative arts company led by female artists, educators, and their supporters seeking to establish greater opportunities for women in our creative community. We work to do so in the areas of performance, film, technical design, management, and written works.

We hope to inspire future generations of artists to promote female empowerment, diversity, and equality within the entertainment industry and our community via our performances, programs, and projects in the state of NY. In addition, we seek to educate and bring social awareness to our audiences regarding women’s issues, rights, & welfare.

What is this project exactly?

This project started out as a "Women's Playwriting Festival" accepting submissions from female playwrights with the intent to produce their work in a live theatre format. However, in light of the current health crisis, our team has had to reimagine the way in which we will be producing the work of our writers so that we can continue to serve the women in our artistic community while keeping our artists and audiences safe. 

We will now be adapting the highest scoring submissions into short films and we will be showing them at different events which we will hold throughout the year thereby changing our theatre festival into a film festival. We will hold smaller viewings throughout the year along with releasing ZOOM readings of our "Runner-Up" plays leading up to our full three day "Film de Femme Festival" and Awards Ceremony in the Summer of 2021. At that time we are projecting it will be much safer for our bigger audiences to view these films in a large crowd.

Why Do We Do It?

Our organization's mission is simple; to create more opportunities for women in leadership positions within our local NY creative community. We would like to help women succeed in our industry. 

This project will help our organization fulfill its mission by creating leadership opportunities for woman in the arts where they are lacking, such as screen/playwriting, directing, and technical roles. 

We will be helping these artists create content that can further their careers and we will also be providing our local communities with new cultural programs in the form of our ZOOM readings, smaller showings of the films, and our final main event, Spark's "Film de Femme Festival" where all works will be showcased in the summer of 2021.

How much are we Looking to Raise?

Currently, we are looking to raise $25,000 via sponsorships, advertising, and other live fundraising events in order to produce and showcase selected written submissions from women writers in NY and across the United States. 

Our writing festival was also selected as a grant recipient by the Huntington Arts Council/NYSCA which is a very competitive grant, however, the recent adjustment to our project has expanded our budget considerably and now we are seeking additional funding from potential sponsors like you. Productions and events like this can be expensive, and to make sure our operations run smoothly and our artists and audiences receive the best experience possible we need your help!


During the current health crisis we have witnessed an explosion of creativity and have had over 350 submissions from NY and across the U.S. proving that we are inspiring women with our message and that our project is needed at this time within our community. We are looking to assign each short film production a $750-$1000 Micro Budget.

This additional funding will help us make our festival as successful as possible. With production costs such as locations, set building, costumes, and other basic needs like venue rental, certain equipment requirements, permits, licensing, parking, and more, a sponsorship from your organization will bring us closer to completing our most ambitious project to date. 


A Note to Potential Sponsors:

We are hoping you would consider sponsoring our project. Your generosity means the world to us. Support from our sponsors will help us launch our most ambitious project to date. If you choose to sponsor our event, we can offer you perks like packages of free tickets, event t-shirts, and VIP access in exchange for your contribution. We can also offer you recognition in our project’s printed materials and signage as well as producer credits on a number of films, and the possibility of walk on and background roles depending on your specific donation amount. Donor package info is included for you to peruse.
