Hi! I'm Kim and I make
Films For Future!

What is 3F - Films For Future?

Films For Future (or in short "3F") is a vision and project about rethinking the role of movies and cinema in the future, and how they can positively help change paradigms, enabling us to tackle global crises more effectively.

Why fix the planet?

Is it my business at all? Aren’t there tons of people already taking care of it?

Well, imagine you’re looking at earth from space. You’ll see a beautiful but vulnerable planet in the middle of a vast black space.

Then you zoom in. You get closer. And the more you get down on earth, the more you’ll be able to notice nasty things. You’ll figure that our planet has many crises:

  • Water
  • Food
  • Pollution
  • Climate
  • Violence
  • Oppression
  • Overpopulation

Let’s be honest with ourselves

These issues are huge. They are all MAN-made. They were created over decades and centuries. Would our world be better without all of them? I’m sure everyone agrees.

Who is solving them?

They are beyond what one government can solve alone. So it’s great when a few governments push a roadmap. But the majority of governments don’t seem to actually care. Or they simply can’t move anything because their influence is too small.

Our future, our home

If we can’t rely on the world’s governments, then who will care for the planet, our home? The UNO? Charities? Companies? Activists? Yes, there are initiatives. But is it enough? Will they be able to change something for good? 

We don’t know.

How can movies help?

It looks like the only realistic way to solve this mess is to get all humankind to care enough, to unite, and to come to a resolve. It’s the kind of thing you could possibly do with films.

So, I thought why not enlist the reach, popularity, and influence of movies? Their plots and animations can showcase how today’s crises can be solved in the future by employing new ideas, concepts, and paradigms. It’s about upgrading the nature of movies from escapism to „elevationism“.

Let’s make films about how we would love the future on this planet to look like! This is what Films For Future is about.
