A24 to donate 5% of 'Florida Project' digital proceeds to Community Hope Center
A24 will donate five percent of proceeds from first-week digital sales of Sean Baker’s award-winning film The Florida Project to the Community Hope Center, an organization that assists families that are either homeless or living in motels along Osceola County's Highway 192 corridor, where the film was shot.
The Community Hope Center’s primary emphasis is serving the homeless and those living in motels and hotels. Through programs designed to restore dignity and self-sufficiency to those in need in Central Florida, the Center uses a holistic approach to case management, funds assistance and life skills. The program—a collaborative effort between local churches, social-service agencies, Osceola County, the city governments and community businesses—is intended to provide gap services that other agencies are not currently providing.

Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows six-year-old Moonee and her ragtag gang of friends. Mooneeand her rebellious mother Halley live week to week at “The Magic Castle,” a budget motel managed by Bobby (Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion.
The Florida Projectappeared on over 200 top ten lists. The title is now exclusively available to own in digital HD before it is released on DVD and Bluray. A24’s donations will come from sales on iTunes, Amazon, Google, Xbox, Playstation, Vudu, Fandango, Comcast and Verizon between Jan. 30 and Feb. 5.
