NFDA invited novice and expert filmmakers from around the world to create films that help convey the importance and power of memorializing lives. Three winning films and six honorable mentions were selected for their ability to inspire others to remember the lives of their loved ones.

NFDA has arranged for allied organizations to use any/all of these films to promote the value of funerals and memorialization:

  • Share with families
  • Post on your website
  • Post on social media
  • Use in community presentations

NFDA has also created a Legacy Filmmaking Guide to help families make their own film paying tribute to a loved one.

Tragic Death Public Service Announcements

Many families choose to bypass a funeral or memorial service because of the stigma associated with tragic death. Public service announcements (PSAs) developed by NFDA through a grant from the Funeral Service Foundation encourage families to memorialize their loved ones, regardless of how they died. PSAs are featured on social media channels. We encourage you to share them on your own social media accounts. Contact us regarding how to use them with your families, on your website or in your community outreach materials.
