Bright Stars

Bright Future

Unilever Project Sunlight is shining a light on one filmmaker’s effort to help create a brighter future.

Storytelling through film has the power to change perspectives. That’s why we’re excited to partner with this year’s Film Independent Spirit Awards. On our very own "yellow carpet," we will be hearing from some of Hollywood’s most celebrated talent asking them what they're doing to make a brighter future while inspiring others to do the same.

Whether you’re a filmmaker, celebrity or fan, living more sustainably to make the world a better place is something everyone can do, one small step at a time. It’s this collective effort that makes a big difference, and the free-spirited environment of the Film Independent Spirit Awards is the perfect setting to spread that message.

To spotlight those helping achieve this goal, we are awarding one filmmaker whose work motivates individuals to take action to create a better world. The first-ever Bright Future Award will be given out during the show symbolizing not only the great work done by an individual filmmaker, but the larger message that teaching others how to give back also has a huge impact on their own future.

The Independent Spirit Awards "yellow carpet" will be live streamed online starting at 2:00pm EST / 11:00am PST on March 1, and the awards show will air Saturday evening, March 1 on IFC at 10pm in all time zones later that night. The live stream can be viewed on Yahoo!.
