Working Films is a national non-profit organization that links independent documentary filmmaking with community organizing and direct action to support social, environmental, and civil justice. Our unique community-based media initiatives support strategic local and regional efforts; our national organizing campaigns are linked to high profile documentaries broadcast on HBO, the Sundance Channel and PBS. Our goal is to create dynamic opportunities for independent media to address the issues of our times – at home, in the classroom, and in our communities.
We are neither a production company nor a distributor. Working Films is a nationally recognized activist-driven bridge between high quality documentary filmmaking and serious policy shifting; we support life-changing organizing that works for social, economic, environmental and racial justice and is tied to strategic and measurable outcomes.
