The Redford Center is committed to transforming social and environmental issues into films that inspire positive change. We engage where there’s a pressing need for awareness and hope, and where public engagement and good timing can make all the difference. We design engagement campaigns for the films we produce so that awareness can truly be the spark that moves people to act. In every step of our process we rely on collaboration—with artists, activists, philanthropists, change agents—and at the end of it, our hope is that we empower masses of people to take part in doing something important and greater than us all. Founded by Robert Redford and his children—James, Shauna and Amy—the Redford Center is an extension of their tireless activism and their faith in creativity, humanity, and positive change.
