  • Creative documentaries

    Our mission is to make engaging creative documentaries out of universal, touching, character driven stories for international broadcasters. We bridge gaps of prejudice and fear with empathy and humanity to encourage our audiences to rethink diversity as multiple reflections of universality, as “One Vibe”. 

    Communication for Development

    One Vibe Films also promotes Communication for Development. We collaborate with international NGOs to improve their communication strategies by creating PSAs, short videos or longer documentaries that best represent their visions and activities.

    Educational videos

    In collaboration with public services, such as the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we create educational videos on social and environmental issues that are distributed in schools on a national scale.  
    Participatory videos

    Our blending of expertise in psychosocial work with media production, gave birth to our desire to work on a grassroots level with the people that feel the need to share their points of views and their stories. 

    New media

    With a strong interest in new media, as a source of new potential to reach out different kinds of audiences, we develop innovative projects on web platforms that allow the global community to interact and learn from each other.
