OUR CHILDREN'S EARTH FILM FUND supports documentary films that further the mission of Our Children’s Earth Foundation and tackle issues related to environmental conservation, empowerment and activism, cultural compassion and human rights. We believe in the power of film to educate, create empathy, change perceptions, and inspire action on critical issues facing humanity and our planet.

We provide support to film and media projects directly, as well as through funding collaborations that help amplify our work.




If you have a documentary film or media project that aligns with our mission, we’d love to hear about it. Send a short note describing your project to us at OCEFilmFund@gmail.com.

SILENT FORESTS [website / Facebook page] is an intimate, character-driven portrait of conservationists and activists who are struggling to stop forest elephant poaching in Africa's Congo Basin region.

After a study revealed that more than half the central African forest elephant population has been lost to poaching in the last decade, there has been a concerted effort to save those that remain.

SILENT FORESTS will explore this story through a range of dynamic subjects; including one of Cameroon’s first female eco-guards, a grassroots wildlife law enforcement group, a Congolese biologist studying elephant behavior, a reformed elephant poacher, and a team of anti-poaching sniffer dogs led by a Czech conservationist. As passionate and tenacious as these conservationists are, they are up against huge institutional challenges like corruption and lack of funding that threaten to derail all their attempts to fight for the future of the forest elephant.
