Our Mission

We believe every student should have free access to mental health education. It is foundational and impacts our physical health, academic achievements, relationships, and safety.

Guiding Principles

Supporting Stories

We support stories that inspire social change and positive action,  The programs and partners we support share the same mission to help people feel, reflect, and be inspired to make change for the better, both for themselves and others, and we follow up with resources and tools to create, balance, accountability, human connection and long lasting impact.

Enhancing and Measuring Our Impact

We know that film is even more transformative and powerful when watched within a community. 2022 marks the launch of iMPACTFUL'S Creative Coping Toolkit a year-long evidence and film-based mental health literacy program for schools. It will enhance learning to include long-term, habitual positive change. It's imperative that we measure impact and share our findings. We also partner with institutions that have helped measure long-term impacts.

Expanding Access to Programs and Tools

We help subsidize the cost of film programs in schools. Since 2011, Impactful Fund, formerly iNDIEFLIX Foundation, has worked with philanthropic partners and education distributors to provide film-based mental health film programming to underserved, overlooked communities and schools, that tend to struggle to get mental health support.  If your school or community group would like to learn more or donate to a community, please reach out to us at
