Harbers Foundation gives visual voice to the most important ideas, causes and organizations of our time. Working with some of the best visual storytellers and filmmakers in the world, we create compelling visual narratives that tell the stories and enhance the efforts of people working to make the world a better place. Our films are intended to spark conversations and inspire engagement across ideological lines, telling diverse stories that challenge our preconceptions and unite us in our humanity.
