Our work builds on the longstanding environmental legacy of our co-founders, Robert Redford and his late son James, and uses the power of storytelling through film to prompt action and connect people with solutions.
“The Redford Center has done a great job paving a singular path in the documentary funding community, and the world will reap the benefits of their impact and prowess well beyond any single grant or film.”
– Gita Saedi Kiely

Impact Spotlight: Raise the River
The Redford Center’s 2012 award-winning film WATERSHED helped inspire the formation of the Raise the River coalition — a unique partnership of US and Mexican non-governmental organizations working to restore the Colorado River Delta. The film premiered on Netflix and PIVOT TV, screened in a dozen countries, and has been featured in over 50 film festivals.
Since the successful debut of the film, the coalition has been able to make significant impact, restoring over 1,000 acres, planting over 245,000 trees, and raising over $10 million for conservation.
