Happen Films is a documentary production company that aims to showcase and demonstrate inspiring solutions to the multiple global crises we’re facing today. We’re living through an exceptional time in human history, where what we’ve known as normal is breaking down as we reach environmental, cultural, and social limits. This overlap of climate change, peak oil, financial instability, environmental destruction and inequality have created the conditions for a massive global shift in the way we relate to the world and to each other.
We need a transition to a way of living that heals and regenerates the damage that’s been done. So how do we go about doing this? The desire to explore this question is what drives the team at Happen Films. The solutions are out there and people are pioneering this transition. We want to share their stories in order to inspire others to make change in their own lives and in their communities.
Happen Films is funded by YouTube views, donations and via Patreon. We keep as much as possible of our content free to view so that the message our interviewees are sharing is spread as widely as possible. At the same time we want the quality of our films to be as high as possible. We’re self-taught filmmakers, constantly learning from experience and invaluable online courses. The generosity of viewers who are able to contribute to our films and our choice to live simply make all this possible. We’re grateful for the opportunity to do something we love and to share it with you!
