At SIMA we have a saying, "Documentary is Fatal to Prejudice." We inspire empathy, foster cross-cultural understanding and spark local and global community action by bringing today's most meaningful current-affairs documentaries to audiences, communities and students around the globe. In the age of fake-news, your donations will inspire critical thinking, support independent filmmakers, enable eye-opening media to reach viewers worldwide, and ignite our human potential to create a better world.
Our global society is facing major political, environmental and ideological challenges. A growing lack of respect for minorities and different cultures is dangerously uniting communities around stereotypes, hate & discrimination. To combat this we need to increase the visibility and accessibility of engaging and civic-action driven media that fosters global perspectives, that stands out with transparency and integrity, and empowers students and communities around the world.
With a network of 2000 content creators from 140 countries, an annual awards program that selects the best films of the year, and global distribution programs that bring the most eye-opening and compelling media to educational institutions, human rights forums, online audiences, and communities in urban and remote areas of the globe, we provide activation and empowerment tools through media events that are antidotes to prejudice and a mending force for our current socio-political climate.
With your help we can scale our impact and work to educate, activate and inspire thousands more next year. We will increase the number of students we are reaching currently from 40,000 to 140,000; and communities and organizations from 31 to 60 countries in 2019. Your contributions will invest in their capacity to challenge viewpoints, inspire dialogues, and foster solutions, empowering a more open-minded and equitable world through access to authentic and educational media.
