IMAGINE • EXPLORE • PRESERVE
Jules Verne Adventures is a non-profit organization, based in Los Angeles, originally founded in Paris, in 1992, by young filmmakers/explorers/writers Jean-Christophe Jeauffre and Frédéric Dieudonné with the support of Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
The mission of educating the public is a direct response to generations of planetary neglect and massive human impact on the environment. JVA takes action: we explore, educate, preserve and inspire through imagination.
Via film productions, exciting and starstudded popular events, educational and environmental programs, and an acclaimed international film festival, JVA embraces the adventurous legacy of Jules Verne, celebrating the wonders of our world in the 21st Century.
“JVA combines education with entertainment. Believing also in Verne’s optimism, we celebrate the best of the human spirit. Education of young people is Key. By helping them think outside the box, as Jules Verne did in his wonderful novels, such as ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’ or ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth,’ we have faith in a better world. We welcome on board all those who share this vision.”
