About the Event

Since 2016, Project UnLonely Films has supported people struggling with loneliness by celebrating the connecting power of storytelling. With over a 100 videos, these award-winning, free short films give a voice to the loneliness epidemic and help viewers feel less alone. This campaign raises awareness of the loneliness epidemic and convenes art, health, media, and policy luminaries to explore effective and sustainable solutions for communities.

Stoops have always brought New Yorkers together, but in recent years stoop life has eroded, particularly in gentrified neighborhoods. Stoop Chat with Jimmy & Shanaya” strives to increase connections across generations while celebrating cultural legacies and neighborhood pride. 

This series pilot was directed by Stoop Stories founder and Emmy-nominated producer Marj Kleinman, and Student Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Gabriella Canal, in collaboration with the Stoop Stories Collective of storytellers and artists.

This film is made possible by public funds from the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Statewide Community Regrants Program, as well as from a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the New York State Legislature, both administered by Brooklyn Arts Council. Funded in part by the Stoop Stories community. Thank you to our donors!
