Our Mission

Giving a Voice to the Voiceless

Many charities do their work unseen by those who could help. So we formed a charity of our own to help make the connection through film. Our work is simple, but the results are powerful. The films we make are platforms that enable non-profits to reach out to those who can help them achieve their mission. By giving our partners a voice we multiply their success. Now they can stand taller, shout louder and show the world the difference they're making.

Partners

You Can't Help Change the World Without Friends

The partners listed on this page are the difference makers for FMFAC. Without their support, our goal of giving a voice to the voiceless would be just out of reach. Take a moment to review who they are and what they do.
