Stories that Illuminate

For 33 years Skylight has been committed to producing artistic, challenging and socially relevant media to strengthen human rights and the quest for justice. Through the use of media and advanced technologies, we seek to engage, educate and increase understanding of human rights and social justice amongst the public at large and policy makers, contributing to informed decisions on issues of social change and the public good.

How we work

Whether it’s a film, outreach website, mobile tool, print piece, educational workshop, photography, screening kit, it’s the story which is paramount to Skylight.

At Skylight we don’t simply tell stories about human rights – we engage people in activism to promote international human rights.  (Watch our Skylight 30 Years video to see more)

We create media with people; collaborating with community leaders, grassroots organizations, and NGO’s to create media that tells their stories, and strengthens their efforts.

We educate with optimism by not only showing the plight, but also the fight.  We show a way forward through education and action.  We make our films widely available to NGO’s and international educators through Academic Screening Packages and Screening Kits.

We increase impact and engagement by creating platforms and new media technologies that makes it easy for people to engage with social issues.  Our new media projects include IJCentral, The Toolbox, and Every Memory Matters.
