The aim of Happen Films is to showcase and demonstrate inspiring solutions to the multiple global crises we’re facing today. We’re currently living through an exceptional time in human history, where what we’ve known as normal is breaking down due to environmental, cultural, and social limits being reached. 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 each other. 

We need to transition to not just living ‘sustainably’, but in a way that heals and regenerates the damage that’s been done. So how do we go about doing this? Exploring this question is what Happen Films was founded upon and is what drives us to do what we do. The solutions are out there and people are pioneering this transition. We want to find these people and share their stories in order to inspire others to make change in their own lives and in their communities. 

Those ‘others’ include ourselves: each of our interviewees has inspired us to make important changes not just in our personal lives but in the way we operate Happen Films. To learn more about how we operate, check out the Happen Films website.
