Impact Partners is a film fund and advisory service committed to financing independent documentary cinema that addresses pressing social issues. We bring together financiers and filmmakers so that, together, they can create great films that entertain audiences, enrich lives, and ignite social change. Since its inception, IP has been involved in the financing of films such as THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES, HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE, THE ISLAND PRESIDENT, DETROPIA, HELL AND BACK AGAIN, which was nominated for the 2012 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature; THE COVE, which won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature; THE GARDEN, which was nominated for the 2009 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature; FREEHELD, which won the 2008 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Film; and THE GHOSTS OF ABU GHRAIB, which won the 2007 Emmy Award for Best Documentary Special.
Films that engage pressing social issues have never reached larger audiences or had greater social impact than they do today. From AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH to THE COVE, these films command an enormous cultural presence and influence. The goal of Impact Partners is to bring together the two groups that make these films possible: filmmakers and film investors/philanthropists.
For investors, our goal is to provide the opportunity to participate in financing great documentaries and independent films, and the structure to do so in a fiscally responsible and profitable way.
For filmmakers, our goal is to provide both financing and guidance. We provide the resources to get films made, the mentorship to make films the best they can be, and the strategic support to achieve the widest possible audience for each film.
