The Upstanders is a documentary about resilience and the power of peers to end bullying.

An IndieFlix Original Documentary. Appropriate for ages 10+

Coming January 2020

What’s with all the meanness online? What’s going on?


When we look in the mirror we sometimes say things to ourselves we would never say to someone else. Are we bullying ourselves?

When we treat ourselves well we model for others how we want to be treated and how others should treat themselves. It has to start with us.


The Upstanders explores cyber-bullying, bullying among friends, families, co-workers and the brain science behind it all.

The film highlights new laws and programs already reducing bullying in schools and shows us how we can learn to make a difference together.


As with all of our films, The Upstanders will provide resources, tools, and hope.

As well as access to well established anti-bullying school programs already making a difference.

Host a screening for your school, organization or community.

We are currently accepting booking inquiries for January 2020 and beyond.
