“NYFA has been the fiscal sponsor of both of my films, The Children of Chabannes and Imagining Peace because I find the staff there to be so supportive of the work. For a large organization, I feel the human touch of all involved. The individuals who work at NYFA genuinely care about the progress of my projects. From a funder’s perspective, knowing that my films are sponsored by NYFA adds an air of credibility to my projects.”–Lisa Gossels, Filmmaker
