Communities in crisis need information and empowerment. FilmAid provides both, to millions of people suffering the effects of war, poverty, displacement and disaster. Films offer a way to reach many people at once, overcoming language and literacy boundaries, providing information where it is needed and inspiring hope where it is lacking.

In post-crisis emergencies and protracted situations alike, FilmAid produces and distributes community-based films on critical public health and safety issues such as maternal health, HIV, cholera, gender-based violence, conflict resolution, and more. Using inflatable screens and other 'Mobile Cinema' units, FilmAid screenings provide psychological relief and healing to refugees and other communities ravaged by trauma and lacking traditional media and information sources.

Through FilmAid's training program, young people develop production skills and self-empowerment that will outlast displacement and gain a platform to tell their own stories, in their own voices.
