Breaking Barriers for Families in Film

Revolutionizing care solutions to transform the screen industry. 


Doing work you love or building a life with the ones you love. No one should have to choose.


Everyone gets a seat; even if we have to bring our own chairs and build new tables.


Equity is key. We hold space for those traditionally silenced; in the workspace and beyond.

who we are. what we do.

As a 501(c)(3) thinktank, Reel Families for Change (RFC) is dedicated to generating meaningful and effective solutions for working families in the American screen industries.

To achieve our mission, we work closely with our members, coalition partners, and a dedicated team of local volunteers. Additionally, our work is made possible by generous supporters who help advance our research, policy, and advocacy efforts.

Every day, we strive to spotlight those who have been traditionally underserved, overlooked, and silenced, in the entertainment industry and beyond. This includes,  but is not limited to women, mothers, parents, caregivers, BIPOCs, LGBTQ, and disabled individuals, as well as those living with mental health challenges and neurodiversities.

We acknowledge that this silencing is often intentional or internalized, but we refuse to accept it. That’s why we proudly speak up in favor of and stand alongside our peers; emboldening, empowering, and elevating their voices.

In short, Reel Families for Change is speaking up for a change.


Reel Families for Change designs transformative solutions by primarily leveraging three catalytic change vehicles:


Debunking “us/them” narratives and reshaping perceptions about the universality of care: we’ll all inevitability need it or give it.


Championing policy development and reform, within our industry and beyond, that supports artist-caregiver, their families, and their work.


Creating comprehensive care solutions for screen professionals working in narrative, documentary, corporate, and commercial.
