We're using films to get people talking about poverty in the 21st Century and to spark a truly global debate. Find out how you can be part of the conversation...
We want to get people talking about poverty and we use film to do it.
We commissioned award-winning filmmakers to make eight documentaries about poverty, and new and emerging talents to make around 30 short films. The films tackle big issues and pose difficult questions, but they're also moving, subtle and thought-provoking stories.
They transmitted around the world in November 2012, on more than 70 national broadcasters reaching 500 million people. They were accompanied by events designed to spark global and national debates and an online conversation to get people asking “Why Poverty?”
The films are now all available online, to use, view or embed and the core of an outreach programme to get people all over the world thinking about poverty.
We're not a campaigning organisation. We don't want money. We're not pushing for a single, specific solution to global poverty.
We do want people to think about the issue and ask questions.
If you want to find out more or get involved, there’s more information on the site about the issues raised in the films and links to indepth resources and organisations working in these areas.
If you like the films, please share them with your friends. If you think you can use them for teaching or screening or just to get more people asking questions, please do.
There's a also a conversation going on online. Follow us on twitter, be friends with us on Facebook, sign-up for our newsletter and tell us what you think.
