We are dedicated to supporting courageous, generous souls who are creating and serving their communities.


We use film to document stories that deepen our understanding of people and processes that strengthen our communities.

We're part of a vital movement committed to building resilient, sustainable, inclusive communities.

With films and gatherings,
we are creating a world with a deep sense of belonging.

We’re committed to promoting uncommon solutions to common challenges. Our mission is framed by Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Beloved Communities philosophy. We film communities’ stories so everyone can see what they accomplished and learned. We also host an amazing annual gathering to build this community—a gathering that feels like home. Come find your people, share stories, try out ideas, and deepen your own sense of belonging. 

What is a Beloved Community?
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. popularized the notion of a global vision in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth, calling it “Beloved Community.” King envisioned the Beloved Community as a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one's fellow human beings.


What is a 
Thriving Community?

It's one that fosters a sense of belonging, that feels alive and engaged and welcoming and resilient. Where people get creative when new problems arise and work together to navigate change. It’s one you’re glad to come home to. It’s one you love.
