GIVE A VOICE TO THE VOICELESS
Many charities do their work unseen by those who could help, and therefore are under resourced to maximize their impact. To help raise awareness and support the good that is happening in the world, we formed a non-profit to help raise awareness globally 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.
"Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth."

THE SUPPORT THESE COMMUNITIES NEED.
Because every member of the FMFAC team is a volunteer, 100% percent of all of our donations go directly to the production of our partner films.
We track our impact by working closely with our partners to develop a series of metrics to quantify the impact of the films on their fundraising, support, and awareness efforts.
On average every $1 we spend producing a film for a partner, returns $5 in incremental fundraising effectiveness for them.
FMFAC MULTIPLIES THE IMPACT OF OUR PARTNERS' EFFORTS FROM AWARENESS TO FUNDRAISING. TO VOLUNTEER SUPPORT.
IDENTIFY: Non-profit organizations are selected
through our multi-step application process. Organizations are clustered geographically to maximize travel investment to enable multiple organizations to be documented at a time.
PARTNER: A partnership plan is developed with each selected organization, identifying their objectives and needs for the film. We then develop the creative vision, production plan, and the amplification plan for the film.
PRODUCE: We travel to the communities where the organization works to document their efforts,
and delve deep into their impact. After shooting in the field, we work with the organization throughout the editing and post-production process to ensure we meet their objectives and needs.
AMPLIFY: With the film complete, we help the organization execute the promotion and distribution plan we developed together at the onset of the grant. Over 90% of the film's views are generally generated offline at events and outreach efforts of the partner organization. The film is simultaneously promoted through FMFAC’s platforms and partnerships, to drive additional support to the organization.
