Vision and Mission
Community Supported Film (CSFilm) amplifies local voices in under- and mis-represented communities so that they can effectively communicate their lived realities through documentary filmmaking.
We believe that if people learn about the world’s challenges from the local perspective they will be better able to demand the right actions from their governments and to support effective humanitarian responses.
