About
About

Southern Star Creatives Foundation is SAVVi Code’s partner for creative arts and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Southern Star Creatives Foundation is dedicated to three core goals: Funding the work of Vietnamese creatives, Preserving Vietnamese culture, and spreading Vietnamese creative content around the world. We accomplish this by accepting submissions from applicants who have an idea for a creative project they would like to make. The most promising get their projects funded, whether it be a short film, documentary, web series, music video, or any other creative media. From the inception of the idea to the production to the marketing and distribution, we are there every step of the way. Contribute by donating or apply to get funded!

The Focus of Our Efforts
Our Activities
Cultural Preservation

A big part of SSCF’s mission is to preserve aspects of Vietnamese culture which are in danger of being forgotten or going extinct. We even go so far as to try to make certain aspects of Vietnamese culture mainstream. Anyone with a desire to create content related to Vietnamese culture is heavily encouraged to apply for funding, whether they want to make a documentary about ancient Vietnamese art or even something as niche as a short film about life in a small town.

Funding and Production

Once the SSCF team has decided which creatives and projects to fund, they assign a budget to that project and assist in any way needed to make sure the creatives can achieve their vision, whether it be assigning a full production crew or by supplying editors. Funding may take the form of grants, loans, or an investment depending on the project and its scope.

Marketing

Once a project is completed, SSCF facilitates the localizing (subtitling, dubbing, etc.) and marketing of the final product. Marketing could take the form of physical posters, online ads, events, or many other forms. You can even apply to have your marketing expenses covered even if your creation wasn’t funded by SSCF in the first place!

Our Manifesto
Our Manifesto

Southern Star Creatives Foundation exists to immortalize everything Vietnamese from the entire culture down to the individual Vietnamese person. Everything we do serves this purpose. We actively seek corporate partners not just to help us fund Vietnamese content, but also because we want to immortalize their products. We want the world to know about Vietnamese coffee chains, restaurants, clothing brands, and even universities. We strongly believe that the more the world is exposed to Vietnam, the better it will be for the country. Similar to how the world was exposed to Japanese culture during their economic rise until today and the current wave of South Korean culture spreading across the world. The days of Vietnam only being associated with war are fading. We hope to create a reality where Vietnam is idolized and romanticized to the extent that Japan and Korea are now. Our strategy for achieving this is by making sure people around the world see Vietnamese content everywhere they look.​

If you have an idea for a short film or documentary or even music video which takes place in one of Vietnam’s many majestic landscapes, please apply for funding. If there is an aspect of Vietnamese culture you are terrified might go extinct in the near future and you want to preserve it through video, please apply for funding. If you are a Vietnamese or international company that wants to contribute to our goal, please become a partner.
