Stories have the power to change the world.
It's time that every voice is lifted up.
Fearless is both the name.
And the promise.
At Fearless, we want everyone to have access to inclusive movies and shows. We belive that every voice is valid and must be heard. We also believe that under-represented perspectives must be given additional support and boosted attention in order to combat the destructive history of the film industry for LGBTQ, female, Black, Indigenous and Disabled communities. Under-represented perspectives are systematically excluded or negatively portrayed in mainstream media and Fearless exists to help shift the narrative into a culture is more inclusive, more understanding and more empathic for perspectives different from our own.
Made by Creators.
Traditional streaming services like Netflix and Disney+ are filled with content that is made by major studios, often with budgets of millions of dollars. On Fearless, independent creators are in the driver’s seat – bringing you the stories they want to tell in the ways they want to tell them. Fearless is the raw and unfiltered way to discover the best stories in the world.
Inclusive. And proud of it.
Fearless showcases content that increases representation and inclusion in film. We believe that including every voice is the right thing to do. LGBTQ, female, Black, Indigenous, Disability, and other minority content fits right at home on Fearless and is integrated into everything that Fearless stands for.
