Film Production and Promotion Program
Through our Film Production and Promotion Program, MPI identifies high-quality short films, documentaries, and narrative features that are aligned with our mission, and provides crucial support for development, pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution. MPI support may include one phase or all five, but with every film, MPI is intricately involved in shaping, supporting, and promoting a polished, hard-hitting final product. In recent years, MPI has also begun conceptualizing and producing its own original film content.
MPI's growing roster of films provides policy groups, elected leaders, teachers, and collegiate student groups with effective tools to raise awareness of critical issues central to the cause of advancing liberty.

Hollywood Career Launch Program
MPI's Hollywood Career Launch Program offers a unique and learning-intensive experience for young freedom-oriented filmmakers. Placing talented, dedicated individuals directly in the film industry, MPI facilitates the training and networking essential to building interns skills and jump-starting their film careers. Interns work closely with industry professionals, build mentoring relationships, acquire vital knowledge and skills, and learn the culture of the business.
MPI's Hollywood Career Launch Program is proving to be a highly effective vehicle for launching the careers of future directors, producers, screenwriters, studio executives, and distributors. As such, we are seeding Hollywood with talented filmmakers who share the MPI vision of freedom in film, and who can bring that vision to life on the screen. At the same time, we are preparing interns to transition into independent filmmakingas writer/director entrepreneurs launching their own production companies. Because our programs are organically integrated, exceptional MPI interns can graduate into the Rising Filmmakers Program to pursue independent film projects. In 2012-2013, four former interns were awarded MPI fellowships.
