type: Donation, NGO
by: Yair Oded

On any given day, we are flooded with a barrage of information which often makes it hard to take the time to focus our attention on a specific issue. This is particularly true of socio-political and environmental matters, which undoubtedly deserve our attention, but frequently get drowned out by the noise.

Film is an incredibly effective medium to bring such issues to our attention.

Films For Action is a non-profit organization which operates an online, free library containing over 4,500 documentaries, short films, and videos as well as thousands of articles revolving around social, political, humanitarian, and environmental issues.

The website contains documentaries covering a wide range of issues- war, peace-building, sustainability and conservation, refugees and humanitarian crises, and more, and serves as an arena for people from across the globe to become socially and environmentally aware. The movies are available in a wide range of languages.

Many of the films featured on the website cover issues that don’t always make the mainstream media. As such, they constitute an excellent platform for independent and emerging filmmakers and journalists who wish to expose their work to the public.

Visit their website to gain access to their ever-growing library of films and learn how to post your own work on their website.

Films For Action launched a donations campaign in order to sustain their operation and guarantee its survival. Please consider donating to this important cause and help spawn a future generation of activists.
