Filmanthropy® is an award-winning social enterprise that specialises in increasing media literacy and access to creative arts resources through participatory content creation and unique community-based workshops.
MEDIA AS A TOOL
FOR SOCIAL GOOD
We work exclusively with organisations, groups and individuals that make a positive social impact. Helping you to help more people.
We want to make sure that everyone knows about your great work. So we work collaboratively with you to identify how creative media can further your reach, improve your engagement and help you to communicate your offering and its impact as effectively as possible.
We involve groups or communities in creating and shaping their content. By arming them with the tools and know-how to capture their own narratives. Making the content creation process equally as important as the content itself.
It's the perfect way to empower the people and communities that you work with - amplifying their voices and helping them to share and explore their experiences - whilst simultaneously capturing the important work that you do.
This unique approach has resulted in some award winning content!
OUR LATEST WORK
We've worked with the National Trust to bring a brand new interactive art exhibition to their Morden Hall Park space.
Entirely designed and created by local young people, over almost 6 months of creative workshops, the space uses different creative mediums to explore this time of social and environmental crisis. Expect paintings, photography, film, drawing, and collages.
We partnered with Deaf and Disabled People's Organisation, Inclusion London, to design and create a pack of interactive multimedia resources that will be used to train statutory organisations (such as the Police, Schools, Housing and Social Care Providers) in more effectively recognising and reporting Hate Crime against Disabled people. Becoming real allies of their Disabled Service Users.
London's volunteers, good neighbours and kind strangers are its lifelines.
We worked with the London Volunteering Strategy Group (LVSG) to celebrate and tell their stories through a crowdsourced film and platform. The very first project of its kind..
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN OUR WORKSHOPS
We believe that the creative arts have the power to change the world. So we are working hard to make them more appealing and accessible to a wider demographic.
Through combining safe and engaging spaces with professional facilitators*, we work hard to make sure that participants leave feeling inspired, empowered, and armed with the tools to become more active citizens.
*all of our workshops are run by professional facilitators, who have DBS checks, Safeguarding Training, and extensive experience in adapting to accommodate a range of different beneficiaries.
Media is powerful. As a medium that not only records the world but also provides people with the opportunity to comment on it and, through discussion, make changes to it.
This is especially true now, when everyday people are reclaiming the media through 'citizen journalism.' Using the tools that they have available to them, like their mobile phone or laptop, to make a real impact on and difference to the world.

For us, video production means much more than just turning up and shooting a video. Clients come to us with objectives and we work collaboratively to come up with the most innovative, forward-thinking solutions to best help them and the people that they help.
Plus, we passionately believe that the creative arts and media are important tools to make a real difference to the world we live in. And we're determined to make sure that a lack of media literacy or access to resources does not provide a barrier to this. So we arm communities with the tools and know-how to capture their own narratives.
