Film Closet is a development communications studio that helps communities, NGOs, INGOs, social enterprises, Governmental organizations, social influencers and changemakers drive positive social change through the power of visual stories.

The world around us is complex and the society that holds us is dynamic. We believe that social change does not start in executive boardrooms, public or private offices but among the people closest to the problems. We use every tool in the box to engage, educate and empower people to become catalysts for change. We connect these people to the ecosystems of brands, governments, technology and training providers and civil society to help them achieve meaningful, scalable and sustainable impact. Our work is developed through a collaborative and iterative design process based around the following simple principles.

Engage – we bring together multidisciplinary expertise to understand the drivers behind issues, the norms which guide our behaviours, the incentives which impact our decisions and the networks and relationships which define us.

Educate – we work as closely as possible with the people affected by the issues we are trying to address and equip them with the knowledge, skills and resources they need to change their own lives and communities for the better.

Empower – we connect people, civil society, business and government to create ecosystems that can address issues from multiple perspectives over an extended period of time to achieve scalable impact.
