Cool.World is about connection

Escape the Bubble

It sure feels like the big social media platforms have us trapped. The current digital landscape puts non-profits, filmmakers and impact producers at the mercy of the markets. It punishes and hinders grassroots movements, niche and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) creators, diminishing momentum for sustainable change. With cause-driven events and screenings moving online this creates even more inequity in the digital space.

Enter Cool.World

We believe digital transformation for progressive organizations and projects is long overdue, and will lead to radical results on and offline. Our platform uses collective power to inspire audiences to take meaningful action, both now during this global pandemic, and later to build the world we want to belong to.

What we do

Help films and audiences find each other

Filmmakers, impact producers: Use our cool platform to make your own virtual event screenings. Organizers: Host a virtual community screening of The New Corporation (our current campaign). 

Put the data back in your hands

Use Cool.World for your digital campaigns. We get results while you contribute to the greater good. Take part in our free Decolonizing Digital Strategy Salon series to find out more.

Connect communities, stories and calls to action
