Stories Lived does not charge an admission fee to submit to our festival, nor do we charge for the world to view and be inspired by our content. Due to this, we rely on support from viewers like you.
Stories Lived is operated by Illuminating Enterprises, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization. There are two great ways outlined below to support our mission of connecting and inspiring through shared stories. The funds we receive are allocated for award money for the winning filmmakers and administrative costs to operate the Festival. These administrative costs include but are not limited to administrative staff; web hosting, web design, and other IT needs; and marketing / promotional expenses.
