Catapult Dreams

Catapult's dream is to diversify and fortify a market of films programmed for children in America by way of creating greater international exchange through its projects.

Catapult's dream is to see a generation of American children that meets their contemporaries in the world through their stories in cinema.

Catapult's dream is to foster a generation whose first exposures to the magical cinematic medium is one that leaves an indelible image in their memories--an image that plants seeds of curiosity and interest that later grows into tolerance and understanding.

Catapult's dream is to offer exposure to international languages and culture in the foundation forming years, especially between the ages of 4-14 when second and third languages are most absorbable.

Catapult's dream is to develop curriculum for film and art schools so we can see as much innovation and production quality in films programmable for children and youth as there is in the commercial and independent film market in America.

Catapult's dream is to make films that delight and inform, captivate and offer exit to young audiences in at least two languages.
