The Collective

The Lost Shoe Collective is an independent multidisciplinary group of filmmakers, researchers, journalists and designers making shorts, documentaries and fiction series aiming to bring to light issues that are impacting society today.

Through original and compelling narratives our focus is to expose outdated social norms, giving a voice to those overlooked and ignored by the establishment both via played accounts and uncompromising factual investigations.

With hubs in Berlin, Germany, and Reykjavik, Iceland, two growing creative capitals in Europe and roots also spanning Colombia, Gambia, Iran, Spain and the UK our perspective is global, and our choice of projects reflects our backgrounds as well as our particular interest in the world’s youth and the continued fight for acceptance many minorities still face in the modern age.

All our projects – from inception to distribution – are completed in house.
