THRIVING COMMUNITIES believes in sharing stories through film to support a deeper understanding of ourselves and each other. 

Find your people. Watch films. 
Share knowledge. Grow.

What’s 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.

What’s Thriving Communities? 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’s Beloved Communities?

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.
