Caroline McGraw
Producer - Never A Neverland
 
Caroline McGraw is a California native whose pioneering spirit motivates her to create films & special art projects that connect people, inspire change and benefit humanity.

A humanitarian, producer, author and activist - Caroline is passionate about cultivating communities of compassion that lead people to action and help alleviate material and spiritual poverty. Over the past 8 years, her passions have taken her across the globe to Swaziland, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa and Mozambique. Recently, she produced her first feature documentary, Never A Neverland (NNL) and a promotional short attached to the film's action campaign, Steps Over Swaziland (S.O.S.). She also produced several short promotional videos for the non-profit sector and a private family video for the Royal Family of Swaziland, and has created, developed and produced several other special projects both locally and internationally.
Never A Neverland
Caroline's roles have included: Co-Creator/ Campaign Manager of NNL's film action campaign, Creator/ Project Manager of Swaziland & South Africa's Fair Trade Knitting/Commerce Project, (which led her to speak on a social entrepreneur panel at the LTD365 Women's Conference in 2012), Humanitarian trip coordinator to Swaziland and Mozambique, and Creator/ Producer of the Historic 122-mile walk across Swaziland that focused on community development, orphan and medical care.

Inspired by her visits to Swaziland, she wrote and self-published her first children's book called Litsemba, Litsemba which means "hope" in siSwati, Swaziland's native language. As an advocate for children's and women's health, Caroline worked alongside renowned genetic researchers and families to help locate the defective gene for G.E.R.D. Subsequently, she was published in the Journal of American Medical Association, July 2000 edition. Currently, she is developing a feature film, Chasing Sunsets, and is in pre-production alongside the North Coast Repertory Theatre in San Diego for the upcoming play I Smile At The Sun debuting in January 2014.

Jesus, her husband and children are her heroes and inspire her daily to spark needed change through film and the arts.

For her documentary film Never A Neverland and her dedication to cultivating communities of compassion that lead people to action and help alleviate material and spiritual poverty, Caroline McGraw has been selected by TheWIFTS Foundation to receive the 2013 Documentary Film Award (Humanitarian).
