Get Involved

We're a people-powered library, and there are lots of ways to get involved. Here are a few jumping-in points:

Become a member. Sign up to start contributing videos and articles to the site.


Submit videos. Add videos via the Add Video + button in our header menu above. We'd love for people to seek out and watch activist-oriented videos on the internet and add the best ones to our library. Submissions just need to be embeddable (like from Youtube or Vimeo), and related to changing the world. Click here for a few content guidelines if you'd like a few.


Spread the word. Tell your friends, coworkers, teachers, family, city officials, and other civic community leaders about Help our library become the definitive community resource for social change films and education.


Donate. In August 2018, we turned lemons into lemonade and went 100% ad-free, transitioning to a fully community-funded project. If you believe in why Films For Action exists, become a Patron Subscriber. You can also donate by PayPal, check or bitcoin.


Get updates. Follow us on FacebookYoutube, Twitter, Instagram, Mastadon, and Patreon.


Send a quick link. Don't have time to submit a video yourself? Send us the link via email.


Tell us how we can improve the website. We always want to keep making improvements to the website, visually, feature-wise, and engagement-wise. Suggestions for site changes or complaints about anything that could work better are welcome.


Tell us how we can improve generally. Big picture, there are a lot of topics we can focus on, a lot of things we can be doing to promote those topics, and not enough time to do it all. Any advice welcome.


Republish! We believe a healthy democracy depends on the free flow of information. All of our original content is published under an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License, and the vast majority of our republished content is sourced from sites and content creators that also believe in the creative commons ethos, so unless otherwise noted, feel free to republish anything you like from our website. Standard attribution and a link back to the original is of course always appreciated.

Be the media. Become a micro-independent news distro that your friends can trust! Regularly share films from us and other like-minded sources to help amplify our collective impact.

We've been able to reach tens of millions of people over the last 15 years - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media.


Know how to code? (Paid position) We're looking for someone passionate about our library who is familiar with .Net, C#, HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Bonus if you've ever worked with the API. Contact us to learn more.


However you'd like to get involved, we hope you'll get in touch via our contact page and share your gifts with us!
