Behind the scenes of Fools & Dreamers

Our philosophy

We make films because we want to make change in the world, even if those changes are small. We’ve chosen the medium of film to communicate our message because we believe it’s the most powerful way to share these ideas.

The majority of our films are released online for free in order to reach as many people as possible. This model of releasing our films is only possible because of the generous donations we receive. Support from our viewers enables us to continue seeking and sharing inspirational stories.

Sharing our films!

An easy and very helpful way of supporting us is to share our films. You can do this in at least two ways!

• Share the films on our YouTube channel with your network via email, social media or just letting people know about us when you’re chatting. Ad revenue from views on YouTube are an important income source for us.

• Hold a public screening of one or more of our films for your local community or a group you’re part of. You can purchase a public screening licence from our Store.
