About this project

Street Soccer: New York is an independently-funded documentary film about camaraderie and overcoming incredible circumstances to achieve one's dreams.  It's the story of 12 homeless men as they prepare for the 2009 Street Soccer USA Cup. The film shows how sports can change people’s lives and it highlights the effectiveness of the Street Soccer USA organization, which helps the homeless get off the streets, find jobs and reconnect with family members.  Watch the trailer above.

The men in this film are an inspiration and represent an entire population of homeless people in America.  This film will shatter your judgments of the homeless and how to address the problem of homelessness. 

Producing this film has been a long and hard process, but it feels phenomenal to be nearing the release.  We have been funding the project on our own for three years and are in the very final stages of post-production, but now we need your help!

In order to finish up, we need to pay for festival fees, licensing rights, marketing expenses and legal fees.  We greatly appreciate any and all help we can get whether it’s monetary or simply spreading the word about this film!

Our primary objective is to reach as many people as possible and show how effective sports can be in creating positive social change.

Thanks for your support!
