Upworthy Isn’t In The Movie-Making Business, But Our Community Is

Ever feel that you were being judged based on your looks, instead of who you actually are? Last week, Upworthy curator Carolyn Silveira posted a Kickstarter video about one actor’s struggles with breaking out of stereotypes. With fewer than two days to go, the Kickstarter campaign went viral, and Iyin’s movie got funded thanks to Upworthy’s incredible community. Yesterday, she recorded a heartwarming video for us:
At Upworthy, our mission is to draw massive amounts of attention to topics that matter. We’re thrilled that we were able to help Iyin green-light this important film. We look forward to her updates as it gets made, and being there at the premiere in New York.
