A well-crafted documentary that shines light on an overlooked or misunderstood issue can be a powerful catalyst for change. But only if people see it — and understand how to act.
In partnership with the American Film Institute’s annual AFI DOCS film festival, we’re helping documentary filmmakers gain new skills and resources to maximize the social impact of their projects. This support is part of our broader efforts to promote innovation through media, which we believe is one of the most powerful avenues for driving positive change on a global scale.
