FilmAid is a development and humanitarian communications organization that harnesses the power and influence of film and media to address critical social issues by creating multimedia content designed to inform, inspire and empower.

FilmAid’s Theory-Of-Change is based on the integration of access, creativity and participation, which drive individual and community change, contributing to positive social impact.

Underpinning this approach is collaboration; working together is fundamental to achieving change.

FilmAid partners with communities, creators, NGOs, Governments, and the private sector to ensure a collaborative approach to this end.
