Thank you for helping to spread the word about this project. All of our promotions are thanks to word-of-mouth, grassroots efforts from people who want to help get this information out to as many people as possible.
Fortunately, there are lots of documentary sites out there now that are spreading information like this to a wider audience, but Films For Action sets itself apart with its dedication to combining this activist-focused library of information with independent news, a Take Action section, and our on-the-ground city chapters, which use film as part of a larger strategy to organize, build local independent media alternatives, and support the movements working for change.
Why Spread the word?
Films For Action is a tool to help raise awareness - to connect the dots, to challenge ourselves and others, to inspire action, and to reach a greater understanding of the world and how we can change it for the better.
To succeed, we must all become media activists. With social networks reaching over 600 million people and growing, each one of us has the power to become the media by regularly sharing content on Facebook, Twitter, Stumble Upon, Reddit, Digg and all the rest. When we reach out to our networks, and they reach out totheir networks, we have the potential to reach hundreds of millions of people, dwarfing the influence of the old media giants and shaping the media paradigm of the future.
Beyond social media, there are hundreds of ways we can spread the word. Have fun and be creative. You can get started with the tools below.
