Warrior Films inspires needed social change by telling compelling stories highlighting transformational solutions.


We believe strong communities are the pathways to guide the next generation. Through film, we inform of the long-standing cultural practices required to sustain and enrich communities. These cultural practices – mentorship, rites of passage, values, rituals, myths and stories, morals and ethics, practices of the mature masculine – are the gifts from our grandfathers and grandmothers that enrich our human experience. We spotlight community programs and groups that use long-standing cultural practices to afford the underserved the gift of human transformation to reach their full potential. They, in turn, take what they have learned and create social change in their own communities.

  • We give a voice to underrepresented and underserved groups and tell the story of their journeys.
  • We highlight rites of passage and mentorship as essential social rituals that enable youth, returning Veterans and others in major life transitions, to flourish, heal and emerge stronger.
  • We spotlight community programs and groups that use effective cultural practices to afford the underserved the gift of transformation to reach their full potential. 
  • We change public perceptions about society’s responsibility to care for underserved groups with compassion and through community.

For every film we make, we engage in grassroots outreach such as talks and screenings to ensure our films have the biggest impact. 

Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.
