The film follows two best friends as they film a dark comedy about killing the bullies in their school–and one of them is not joking. The film absolutely brings two of the most critical issues—bullying and gun violence–into the theatrical spotlight. Robin Bronk, CEO of the Creative Coalition states:

“The film embodies the type of content we identify for The Creative Coalition’s Spotlight Initiative, and we look forward to supporting a film that educates and inspires those who can influence positive changes to our current policy.”

Director Smith states:

“Not only is THE DIRTIES an astonishingly great first film, it has the stones to deal with some very real subject matter in a mature, important way.”

The Creative Coalition’s Spotlight Initiative champions the art and craft of independent filmmaking by providing cause-related marketing strategies and issue campaign resources that allow the film’s message to reach beyond the movie screen.  By bringing in influencer’s from the business, entertainment, arts and policy arenas to support Spotlight Initiative films, The Creative Coalition is able to promote socially relevant, independent filmmaking.
