The best in environmental and social action films


A cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers. River takes its audience on a journey through space and time; spanning six continents, drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming, the film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before.

Other Side of the Hill

Emmy nominated “Other Side of the Hill” explores the impacts of a changing climate in rural Eastern Oregon. From innovative timber operations in Wallowa County to large-scale solar in Lakeview, the film amplifies the voices of rural communities often left unheard. Despite cultural divides, we find common ground in an urgency to address a changing landscape.

Fantastic Fungi

Fantastic Fungi is a vivid journey into the mysterious subterranean world of mycelium and its fruit— the mushroom. A story that begins 3.5 billion years ago, fungi makes the soil that supports life, connecting vast systems of roots from plants and trees all over the planet, like an underground Internet. 

Invisible Hand

Produced by award-winning actor Mark Ruffalo, INVISIBLE HAND takes you behind the curtain of the global economy where ‘Rights of Nature’ becomes “capitalism’s one true opponent.”

We the Power

We the Power follows friends, families and visionaries as they break down legislative barriers and take power back from big energy companies to put it in the hands of locals and strengthen their towns. The film chronicles local cooperatives from deep in Germany’s Black Forest to the streets of ancient Girona in Spain and the urban rooftops of London, England, as they pave the way for a renewable energy revolution and build healthier, financially stable communities.


“Gather” follows the stories of Native Americans on the front-lines of a growing movement to reconnect with spiritual and cultural identities that were devastated by genocide. The reclaiming and recovery of ancient food-ways is a way forward for Native Americans to bring back health and vitality to their people.

2040: The Regeneration

Award-winning director Damon Gameau (director of That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them into the mainstream.

Kiss the Ground

Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, the soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.

The Pollinators

Seventy per cent of agriculture depends on bees’ pollination. But the bee population is disappearing putting us all in jeopardy. To remedy this, beekeepers drive their truckloads of honey bees all over the US to pollinate the flowers that become edibles and keep the food chain from complete breakdown. The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified and toxic chemically dependent agriculture system. Along the way, farmers, scientists, chefs and academics provide perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security, and what we need to do.

Living in the Future's Past

In this beautifully photographed tour de force of original thinking, Academy Award™ winner, Jeff Bridges shares the screen with scientists, profound thinkers and a dazzling array of Earth’s living creatures to reveal eye-opening concepts about ourselves and our past, providing fresh insights into our subconscious motivations and their unintended consequences. Bridges reveals the keys we need to move into the future wisely.

Living The Change

Directors Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson have brought together stories from their travels around New Zealand, along with interviews with experts able to explain how we come to be where we are today. From forest gardens to composting toilets, community supported agriculture to timebanking, Living the Change explores solutions to the global crises we face today and offers ways we can rethink our approach to how we live.


A poem for the planet, Metamorphosis captures the true scale of the global environmental crisis. Forest fires consume communities, species vanish, and entire ecosystems collapse. But this crisis is also an opportunity for transformation. Through a tidal flow of stunning images, Metamorphosis carves a path from the present to the future, and offers a bold new vision for humanity and the world.

A Plastic Ocean

A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution – while introducing workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.

The Reach Of Resonance

The Reach Of Resonance juxtaposes the creative paths of four musicians from different parts of the world using music for very unusual investigations. The film explores music not as a form of entertainment, career, or even self-expression, but as a tool to develop more deeply meaningful relationships with people and the complexities of the world they live in.

The Economics of Happiness

The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, people around the world are resisting those policies – and starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm – an economics of localization.


All.I.Can is a stunning exploratory essay that compares the challenges of big mountain skiing to the challenges of global climate change. Shot on 6 continents over 2 years, the world’s best skiers deliver inspirational performances while ground-breaking cinematography expands our vision of the natural world.

The Butterfly Effect Through Films and Documentaries

Have you ever heard of the Butterfly Effect?

The butterfly effect is a theory that everything matters – a minute localized change or single occurrence, no matter how small, can make a difference and have large effects elsewhere – even changing the course of the universe forever. Our stories reveal larger patterns or metanarratives about our big challenges, and opportunities, in a world of accelerating change. These stories call us to a high-stakes planetary adventure – an adaptive learning journey that compels us to ask questions we’ve never asked or to take action we’ve never dreamed or dared.

Our part in accelerating awareness and change:
Films for the Planet provides the streaming of transformational media to create a butterfly effect around our planet. Our collection of films – available on a single platform – makes it easy to find the stories to help inform more people about our most critical issues. It’s by increasing awareness about these issues and engaging diverse audiences that we hope to generate the conversations and collective actions among communities worldwide. One film at a time, we can align our consciousness and discover real-world solutions to make our world a better place.
