Welcome to Kelly Superheroes

JANE CASTthumbnail_2014 08 06 Filming Ja


Kelly Superheroes, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was founded by Brendan Kelly, a boxer, filmmaker, and community activist with a passion in helping our future generations, especially underserved, at-risk youth. He has lived in the Coachella Valley for over 10 years and has established relationships with community leaders, government officials, and various organizations within the valley. On the film industry side, Brendan is endorsed by well-known actors and directors such as Ric Roman Waugh, Josh Brolin, and Emilio Rivera, to name a few. 


Brendan wanted to find a way to blend his two passions of film and mentoring, through which Kelly Superheroes was born. We want to tell inspiring stories through motion pictures while mentoring the Coachella Valley youth in the cinematic arts.

Through our mentorship program, Coachella Valley Film Initiative (CVFI), we provide classes and movie set internships to give the kids of Coachella Valley a chance to be involved in a positive, creative industry where they can gain confidence through self-expression and develop their artistic talents. Classes will cover all aspects of filmmaking:

  • Set Design

  • Screenwriting

  • Acting

  • Directing

  • Hair, Makeup & Wardrobe

We believe that through inspirational filmmaking and giving our youth a positive outlet, the world can become a better and brighter place. Join us in this journey.

Kelly Superheroes would not be able to exist without the real life heroes who have helped turn our dream into a reality. If you'd like to support our foundation, please feel free to use the donate button located below. All donations are tax deductible.
