The team at Mill Valley Film Group is challenged every year to tell the complex and heroic stories of the Goldman Prize winners in just three short minutes, and every year they do an amazing job.
We know that storytelling through film is one of the most powerful ways to inspire and educate viewers, and we are so pleased to work with such a great team of filmmakers to spread awareness of the Goldman Prize recipients and their work.
