The Institute, as the educational portion of the festival, offers intensive workshops from talented industry professionals on all aspects of filmmaking, distribution, fundraising, and social change media. In 2011, the Institute brought the 4-day Documentary Filmmaking Course with Jonathan Stack to Indonesia, a country with only one film school. With generous support from the Ford Foundation, the Social Change Film Festival was able to provide fellowships for eleven aspiring filmmakers. SCFFI was founded by the Solet Initiative in 2009. The expanding list of partners includes: One Degree Media & Entertainment, Elevate Studios, The Creative Coalition, Working Films, New Day Films, Earth Protect, Ubud Vibe, San Francisco Green Film Festival, Michael Wiese Productions, A World Institute for a Sustainable Humanity, and the 2020 Fund.
