15 Years of Shine Global

As we head into 2021 and our next 15 years, we want to take a little time to look back at what we’ve been able to achieve at Shine Global in our first 15 years.  None of this would have been possible without our dedicated filmmakers, the tireless activists we’ve partnered with, the children and families who opened their lives to us, and the sustaining support of viewers like you.  This 10-minute look back shares Shine Global’s work from our first film War/Dance to our most recent release Virtually Free, as directors recall some of their most memorable experiences and the change these films have been a part of in the world.

Hear more from our filmmakers!

In celebration of our 15th Anniversary, Shine Global hosted a free screening series featuring several of our films with live Q&As with the filmmakers, activists, and film protagonists.  You can watch two highlight videos from those events and you can now also head to our YouTube channel to watch the recorded Q&As from each event!

For every story Shine Global has brought you over the past 15 years, there are dozens more that need to be told. And Shine Global ensures these stories have an impact as we create compelling films, tools for community action, and the companion educational materials that will inspire the next generation of leaders.
