Shot Lister, the successful shotlisting and scheduling app, is teaming up with FilmAid International to raise funds for their South Sudan Refugee Emergency Response Team. The team uses film to get life-saving information as quickly as possible to the tens of thousands of refugees arriving at the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Northern Kenya.

South Sudan has been in the midst of a violent civil war that has displaced over 1.5 million people. Now, it is also on the brink of famine. This year over 40,000 new South Sudanese refugees have arrived at the camp with 60,000 more expected. Many have serious health issues, and getting them information quickly on how to access food and water, temporary shelter and urgent medical treatment, can save lives.

To encourage filmmakers to support FilmAid, Shot Lister is dropping the price of their app from $13.99 to $1.99 for 10 days from September 8 – 18th and every cent raised will go to FilmAid
. They hoping by practically giving it away, way more filmmakers will download it and FilmAid will benefit much more than if it wasn't on sale.

Film director Zach Lipovsky, the app's designer, says "Since the launch of Shot Lister two years ago, we've had a lot of support from the filmmakers all over the world and it's our way of giving back to the film community and supporting the amazing work done by FilmAid at the same time".
And if filmmakers already have Shot Lister, no problem, they, or anyone else for that matter, can still help by donating through www.shotlister.com
