Thanks to Our Patreon Supporters, We Hit Our 2nd Major Funding Goal!

My friends, this is huge! Thank you so much for making this happen.

Hitting our $2400/mo goal ensures that Films For Action will remain strong and financially secure for years to come.

What is most incredible to me is that the last few hundred dollars of support was pledged in just the last two weeks.

People are facing uncertainty of all kinds - when what matters and what doesn't matter truly comes in to focus - and we've seen support for Films For Action surge, not decline. It has been truly humbling to see.

14 years after creating this project with a few friends, I remain deeply honored to be able to serve the vision of "a more beautiful world" through Films For Action.

With all my gratitude,

Tim Hjersted

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
