One Vibe Films is an independent production company that aspires to promote intercultural dialogue in our modern societies.
Our emotionally engaging stories intend to amplify people’s forgotten voices, while restoring their dignity and empowering their communities’ identity.
Our socially engaged films bridge gaps of prejudice by bringing our audiences closer to the everyday reality of far away people, ethnic minorities, women and children. Through local stories that have a universal appeal, we foster raising awareness on sustainable development, environmental, social and human rights issues with our creative character driven documentaries and NGO videos.
Develop and Implement
We organize PV workshops (Participatory Videos) with unprivileged groups of citizens to enhance social activism at the grassroots level.
We develop and implement video documenting and training projects, while organizing safeguard plans in the field of development and intangible cultural heritage. With the support of Unesco specialists, local authorities and NGOs, we have matured extensive experience in Latin America.
We innovate our productions and educational initiatives with cross-media interactive projects on various platforms and devices.
