Description of partnership levels:

Network Partners are networks and organizations who are aligned in values and mission and who have the capacity to co-weave shared vision and resources to accomplish like-minded goals. Network partnerships are invited, for example, to co-create thematic film conversations that are mutually beneficial, as well as to amplify and promote these collective efforts to advance our respective movements for the greater good. Network Partners receive promo packets which includes basic information for events and we are happy to support cross-promotional activities.

Films for the Planet’s collection of educational films offers unique learning opportunities for students, groups and individual lifelong learners. For teachers and facilitators, this includes exceptional films and documentaries that are accompanied by outstanding educational curricula. Our educational partners are seeking learning experiences that enhance traditional learning styles. We also welcome collaboration with those who are reshaping the distribution of knowledge through interactive virtual classrooms and connected learning environments, and which integrate alternative approaches such as P2P and project based learning, with on demand educational documentary resources.
Media partners are essentially indie media promoters and distributors, or content producers working with various forms of transmedia including cross-platform, social media, VR, film, documentaries, music, interactive storytelling, photography, art and journalism. They are connected to networks of relevant media producers and are aware of pivotal and newly created content that has high social impact and production value and which merits specialized engagement and distribution strategies.
Community Partners are practitioners working within the context of local communities by bringing people together through sustainability practices, community dialog, civic engagement, storytelling, and the arts. Their purpose is to help local communities find the common ground in an age of increased polarization, to help forge resilient and thriving economies, and to establish an ethos of trust, peace and compassion.
