About Us

We believe in the power of storytelling to transform lives

Who we are

Founded in 2014, My Life Films is a UK-registered not-for-profit charity dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by dementia. We are a group of passionate filmmakers who believe that every person has as a wonderful life story to tell. Our vision is a world where people living with dementia are not defined by their illness.

Our Values

Life-affirming 

Each and every life is special and those living with dementia have a right to live with dignity. Our work takes us beyond the illness; we help people be seen as wonderful individuals, each with a rich life of experiences and memories to be treasured.

Creative Passion 

We are dedicated in heart and mind to achieving our very best at all times, and take a creative, people-led approach in everything we do. Practically anything is possible if we turn our minds to it.

Being Human 

Our work is profoundly personal and calls for us to have the courage to connect deeply. Compassion, generosity of spirit and respect are at the forefront of everything we do.

Pioneering Spirit 

We break new ground and explore new ideas with energy and purpose. By working in close partnership with others, we produce practical actions which have impact and meaning.
