Clips of Faith, New Belgium Brewing’s traveling philanthropic beer and film festival, recently wrapped up its third successful season, raising $117,656 for local nonprofits. Approximately 16,400 people came out for homemade films and handmade beers as the tour visited 18 cities across the country, the company reports.

All proceeds from beer sales benefit local nonprofit partners and over its three-year run, Clips of Faith has raised approximately $208,650.

In Davis, $8,519 was raised at the Aug. 10 event, to benefit Davis Bicycles! and the Davis Bicycle Collective. Of the 1,300 attendees, about one-quarter arrived on a bike, and an 89 percent average waste diversion rate was reported.

Last year, the Clips of Faith stop in Davis attracted 1,250 attendees and generated approximately $3,800, the company reports.

Davis’ 2012 fundraising total was fifth best in the nation, trailing only Knoxville, Tenn.; Madison, Wis.; Boulder, Colo.; and Kansas City, Mo.

During each event, attendees were able to watch amateur films, try New Belgium’s Lips of Faith beers (http://www.newbelgium.com/beer) and enjoy food from local vendors. Alternative transportation was encouraged and an average of 20 percent of attendees rode bikes to the show. In addition, each event had a zero waste goal, diverting, on average, 83 percent of the waste from landfills.

“We appreciate the hospitality we experienced in each city on the tour,” said Christie Catania, Clips of Faith manager-at-large. “We had a fantastic lineup of films, awesome partners and we feel fortunate getting to share our nights alongside friends across the country. Our favorite part is working with our local nonprofit partners, to help them raise money for causes that better the local community.”

The creative team at New Belgium Brewing reviewed and chose the films that went on tour. All selected filmmakers received a custom New Belgium gift and had their films screened in all 18 cities.

If you are a filmmaker, or an aspiring filmmaker, and would like to be part of New Belgium’s 2013 Clips of Faith tour, entries will be accepted from Jan. 1 through April 15 at www.clipsoffaith.com.
