Our name comes from the merging of the words 'film' and 'philanthropy.' And it pretty much explains what we do in one word.
FILM + PHILANTHROPY =
To empower individuals, organisations and groups to further their social impact, utilising the creative arts and traditional, digital and social media.
Visual and creative media have the potential to change the world. We're commited to making them accessible tools for the citizens and organisations that have the potential to use it to make a real difference to society. That means increasing media literacy and access to resources.
Filmanthropy is a Community Interest Company. This means that our social purpose is protected.
We have chosen this structure because our social impact really matters to us and we want to ensure that it remains at the centre of what we do.
BENEFITS OF VIDEO
" 1 minute of video is equal to 1.8 million words to an audience. "
- Dr. James McQuivey
Often small businesses, social enterprises, charities and not-for-profit organisations do not have any form of video promotion. But video has many benefits:
featuring video on your website makes you more likely to rank on the first page of Google search results.
once they're on your site they will spend much more time if it has video content.
in fact, most people who watch a video will recall it a month later.
it's shared a lot more than text too!
