Documentary Film has long played a transformative role in our global culture, heightening awareness while tapping into familiar and relatable characters and synopses that draw audiences in and leave an indelible impression.
With film’s ability to connect on an unconditional, authentic level, we have a symbiotic artistic outlet for everyone involved, and this very fertile ground for understanding and communicating is the ideal place to make an impact.
Where else are we most inclined to digest and activate a significant message than in school?
Reaching students, faculty, and educational organizations through meaningful films is at the core of what we do.
FILM PLATFORM collaborates with some of the leading filmmakers and sales agents around the world to bring the finest documentary films to an academic audience. Our international selection of films introduce new concepts, expose students to fresh perspectives, and enhance classroom discussions on a real-world level. Through these films, people and ideas from the most far-flung, inaccessible corners of the world are transported straight into a sphere of learning that not only engage students but also challenge them to think differently and question everything they know.
In many cases, the films we offer are accompanied by a selection of study guides, as well as press kits, articles, and interviews with the filmmakers and their subjects. Our catalogue is continually expanding to include brand new films and cater to the needs of academics and institutions around the world.
FILM PLATFORM is proud to work with an academic advisory board to ensure the highest educational standards are upheld and many of the filmmakers we work with also engage with viewers through Zoom Q&A’s and live interviews. We encourage all of our users to bring their discussions to the web, where educators and students share ideas, insight, and dialogue with the actual filmmakers.
