Preserving & Empowering the


The most impactful way to preserve the Voice of the Artist™ is to place the power of any artist back where it belongs - in their hands. TILFA proudly presents VOA Live, a non-profit video podcast on a mission to restore, preserve and empower the voice of all artists around the world.  Our purpose is to support and protect the diversity of all artists in front and behind the camera of the film and performing arts industry. Too often we forget the arts are not bound by borders. Artists are students of the world and our craft, despite the disciplinary art, is a reflection of humanity as a whole. "Silence the voice of one artist anywhere, we silence the voice of humanity everywhere," TILFA & VOA Live founder. 

VOA Live is designed to bring global attention to the immense diverse community of artists around the world. Designed to be fully transparent, the voice of each episode will include expert guests skilled on topics to impact change.  We discuss achievements, projects, and goals while bringing awareness to issues and challenges. Our hope is to expose these issues as central concerns around the world despite the location of an artist. Through the transparency of each voice, TILFA aims to be the solution via our global platform as well as start timely important conversations in film communities around the world to initiate the change most desperately desired.

Silence the voice of one artist anywhere, we silence the voice of humanity everywhere.
