Reel Stories, Real Lives

The people we serve and their stories of hardship and triumph.

The entertainment industry’s best and brightest stars come together to tell stories written by top film and television writers about entertainment industry members and their families who have benefited from MPTF’s services. Held annually, Reel Stories, Real Lives is an intimate event that raises awareness, entertains, and educates with personal journeys that speak to us all.

“No one gets into this business because it’s easy. We struggle to make something great because we want to leave our mark. Every single day, MPTF is leaving a mark on people’s lives. It’s lifting people up and it’s making a difference.”

– KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY

Emmy Award-winning Producer, Writer and Actor
