The typical goal of a film producer, film director or filmmaker is to get their movie into Netflix or screened in cinema. There’s nothing wrong with it. We all need to make money to pay our bills.
However, with Films For Future I want to go one step further. The venue where a film is shown should not be the most important thing. What’s important is the impact a film has on our lives.
You know, unfortunately there is so much disinformation going on today. And there is a huge amount of information out there, but it’s not connected. People don’t have the time to sort it out and put the pieces together.
So I want to create documentaries that offer a combination of information, education and activism. It’s a format you can’t get nowhere else.
I want to be able to give my audience an experience like: „Wow, got it, yes, now the whole thing makes sense. And yeah, if we all make our voices heard, it will change something.“
Today, the problem is that an agitating minority will be able to make their voice heard because they make a lot of noise. The majority of people, however, all of us who want constructive solutions to society’s issues, we don’t go to the streets to demonstrate. We shake our heads and try to stay away from the mess.
But doing nothing isn’t good either because it could encourage those who make noise to make even more.
I’m not a political or religious activist at all, but I believe that documentary films should not only be informative but also foster a community of like-minded people around a problem, provide ideas as a first step to solve it, all while being entertaining.
