Stories that illuminate


We strengthen social justice movements through cinematic storytelling and catalyze collaborative networks of artists and activists.


We envision a world in which hope and solidarity unite us and stories of justice and freedom define us.


Whether it’s a film, digital platform, mobile tool, print article, educational workshop or building a network of artists and activists, 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.  

We create media with people; collaborating with human rights and environmental defenders to create media that tells their stories and strengthens their grassroots movements.

We show pathways forward by not just documenting the plight, but also the fight to show the process of creating structural change.

We increase impact and engagement by creating media ecosystems with filmmakers, artists and human rights and environmental defenders to tell stories that shift perceptions of how we can engage with the most pressing issues of our times.

Our History

As a human rights media organization, Skylight’s work has focused on amplifying the voice of constituencies battling for social justice and their rights since our founding in 1981. The content we produce – from documentary films to a range of digital media projects – creates a media ecosystem that strengthens a culture of rights and engaged citizenship. We combine the storytelling arts with human rights media strategies in the service of social movements, a process that has made us a part of battles for the narrative in movements around the world.
