Our Mission

We are a creative lab, content platform, and cultural hub for a diverse and underserved audience.

Mala Forever develops and produces new media (film & editorial), and commissioned work that centers unheard voices.

 

Invisible Men

Original

We develop, package, and produce feature-length and short narrative and documentary films, as well as episodic television content that uplifts and honors our community through the power of story.

Anthem

Editorial

We provide a consistent source of entertaining and impactful new media that matters to radical femmes (and the people who love us). In doing so, we build an engaged digital community and sustainable platform for emerging creators.

Playfull Lookbook

Commissioned

We collaborate with brands, organizations and influencers to create mission-driven content that aligns with our community values and is relevant to our audience.

Our Team

 

We met as two young radical feminists in film school at NYU, and have been creative partners ever since.

We share over two decades of leadership experience in film production, content strategy and community empowerment. Co-founding Mala Forever is the culmination of our talents and passion for serving the diverse communities we belong to.
