Thriving Communities

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

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.

Thriving Communities is dedicated to supporting courageous, generous souls who are creating and serving their communities.

Thriving Communities uses film to document stories that deepen our understanding of people and processes that strengthen our communities.

Thriving Communities is part of a vital movement committed to building resilient, sustainable, inclusive communities.
