Filmmakers Collaborative produces films and campaigns with a variety of strategies and approaches to fulfill its mission, including:
We produce original documentary films and related companion projects for theatrical, broadcast, educational, and web distribution. Our films and related companion projects have been distributed internationally in many different venues, and received multiple awards and festival invitations.
We provide non-profit, educational, and government organizations with communication tools such as films, web sites, and DVD’s to facilitate their public outreach initiatives. These projects are typically designed to increase public awareness and community involvement through a variety of strategic distribution channels.
