What is the Better World Fund? ...


Today, the cinema industry holds a statutory role as a vector of social, educational and environmental values. 

Awareness is an essential pillar of the art, as is the need to present better visibility to powerful and cause focused films, all driven by the desire to have a positive impact on the world. 

As such, since 2016, through tangible actions, prestigious international events and inspiring cultural programs, we have brought together celebrities, filmmakers and leaders from all around the world, fueled by the desire to positively influence the future of our society.

The Better World fund stands out with its unique disruptive format as it offers a rich program, full of meaning and hope, through:

  • Mastermind Conferences 
  • Master Classes,
  • “Academia for a Better World” 
  • “Youth's got the Power” conferences,
  • Cocktails & Networking Lunches 
  • Sumptuous gala dinners invigorated by showcases,
  • Awards in recognition of leaders, artists and entrepreneurs who instigated a positive impact, including innovative start-ups.

What is the Better World Fund?


Through our cultural commitment and our support for high-impact projects, we will contribute to reducing inequalities, improving well-being and protecting our planet and our ecosystems, as this year, we support the The Akbaraly Foundation and the Amazonia Fund Alliance Program for the UNESCO Brazilian Federation (BFUCA).

Some of our latest achievements and positive impacts include:

  • In December 2021, during Expo 2020 in Dubai, we raised awareness for people with disabilities and promoted charity organizations that have been implicated, including the global philanthropic organization Dubai Cares.
  • In March 2022, within the framework of the Expo 2020 in Dubai and the United Nations Oceans Fortnight, we focused on the preservation of our oceans and the importance of the blue economy.
  • In May and September 2022, during the Cannes and Venice film festivals, we focused our actions on raising both funds and awareness for global inequalities related to food, health and sustainability.

About us

Promoting peace is our mission

our mission is to promote peace

The Better World Fund is an endowment Fund, based in Paris. The Better World was created in 2016 in response to a humanitarian impulse stemming from a society in need of authenticity and truth. Beyond political, religious or cultural differences, we spotlight Women’s Rights, Education, the Environment and Biodiversity. More than ever, we must protect our Planet. The Better World Fund has been organizing, since 2016, a series of high-level events in key locations – this program takes place in different parts of the world, Cannes Film Festival, Venice Film festival,

Los Angeles, Toronto, Monaco, Cairo, New York, Saudi Arabia and at the Dubai Expo 2020. We work together with other influential people from Cinema, Music, Business, Sports and Fashion industries. Our disruptive format makes our High Level events unique: we’ve put together a variety of programs, including a morning Mastermind Conference with influential speakers, a business lunch, a gala dinner with shows, challenges for startups, and prizes from The Better World to recognize the positive impact of businesses and figures from the film industry.

Our president vision

Manuel Collas de La Roche

“In the age of technology, the multiplication of social networks and the apogee of the virtual, which makes us lose sight of the true meaning of life, it is essential to refocus on our values and to make them live through our actions.

Humanists must incarnate their values and inspire our actions to regain that balance and the harmony that is increasingly maltreated on this planet.

I created the Better World Forum because I am firmly convinced that humanity must be reborn on a new basis, to allow the enlightenment of every human being to flourish and to illuminate our world that so badly needs it.“
