FilmAid International

FilmAid International is a non-profit humanitarian aid organization that leverages the power of film to help people in need throughout the world.

FilmAid runs a wide range of film-based programs, from huge outdoor screenings reaching thousands at a time, to community-based video production workshops that empower through film-based story-telling.

FilmAid works in communities that lack a solid communications infrastructure and that have a need for information, inspiration, or both. We work in refugee camps, urban slums, disaster zones, and other communities in crisis.

Since its founding in 1999, FilmAid has brought critical information to nearly two million people from places as diverse as Sudan, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, Macedonia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and the U.S. Gulf Coast.
