Films for the Planet supports courageous and imaginative interaction through the catalyst of film. We support the work of artists and filmmakers working in the philanthropic, environmental and social impact sectors, acting in a promotional capacity connecting people to films that will assist them in their journey as catalysts for positive change. We believe good content can create waves of change by sparking learning, conversation, and participation. To that end, we facilitate and co-create thematic film programs for communities, educators, and organizational networks around the world. We invite you to explore exciting ideas for 21 century storytelling that activates diverse audiences around collective action while supporting the streaming distribution of high-quality digital content designed for perpetual learning, and citizen engagement.
