Film Impact Work

Stories are tools for change.

Our programs use documentary film to dismantle harmful narratives and organize communities to take action within social justice movements.

Why we do this work

  • Stories build narratives, and narratives build culture.
  • Stories can make abstract concepts and data more concrete.
  • The creation of stories that show the complexity and wholeness of human experience, including people’s agency and dignity, is an act of social change.

Whether you are a filmmaker, an audience member, or a funder, you can find ways to get involved with our impact programs and join the movement for greater equity in the documentary industry.
