About Blue Sky Project

Whose voices deserve to be heard? Whose stories deserve to be told? To us, exploring questions like these can bring about more than social justice. It can bring about a genuine understanding of and empathy for people and ideas that have been overlooked, discarded, forgotten.

We believe you must keep moving through darkness to find your way into the light. Blue Sky Project is a 501-c3 not-for-profit conceived to create and distribute documentary films focused on underreported social issues that shape an open and enlightened society. Our films provide educational outcomes and contextualized history.

Our goal is to inspire ideas and action for real and lasting change.
