Welcome to Pomegranate Foundation

Pomegranate Foundation’s mission is to support filmmakers and other artists who are engaged in raising awareness about all forms of intolerance — from bullying and social out-casting, to ethnic cleansing and genocide.  The Foundation also supports the academic study of genocide prevention and oral history projects related to a wide-range of human rights issues.

Why the pomegranate?
The pomegranate is a symbol of hope, regeneration and abundance around the world, dating back to antiquity. It is a universal symbol, crossing many cultures and religions. The pomegranate symbolizes hope and change – what is needed in addressing this universal problem.
