United Notions Film develops and produces thought-provoking films and media.

Our driving force is to create experiential films with challenging ideas that push boundaries, to make sense of a world where we are bombarded by information.

Our films stimulate debate, compel people to form an opinion and inspire them to take a stand. We believe in humanity and the possibility for change to make this world a fairer place.
