Each film will be utilized in a year round thematic program, in support of partnerships with other non government organizations, country support, not for profits, theaters, on line demand platforms, school/universities, museums, and creative exhibitions.

The following films were chosen to receive merit and participate in the year round thematic program.

“Our program was created in a needed time when minorities and representation for the Indigenous people, world peace, Middle East, Africa, and environmental filmmakers were not represented and distribution was not “popular,” or often times considered commercial. We have been around since 2012, working one film at a time. This year during Festival de Cannes, I am pleased to finally see cross promotions of minorities and the celebrities demanding a different voice be heard. This includes the role of women. Let our voices be heard.” Stated Founder and President of New Generation In Action’s AFI World Peace Initiative, and Greta Joanne Entertainment Princess Dame Angelique Monét

Bridges, alongside prominent scientists and authors, weaves evolution, emergence, entropy, dark ecology, and what some are calling the end of nature, into a story that helps us understand our place among the species of Earth’s household.
