About Us

Working Films linking nonfiction film to cutting edge activism.

Recognizing the power of stories to inspire and transform, Working Films builds partnerships between nonfiction media-makers, nonprofit organizations, educators and advocates to advance social justice and environmental sustainability, and support community-based change. We train and consult filmmakers in audience engagement and work with NGOs to use documentaries to enhance their programs, extend their reach, and move their missions forward. Our flagship program is Reel Engagement, which uses collections of award-winning media to address major issues of our time:

    Climate Change (Reel Power),
    Education (Reel Education),
    The Economy (Reel Economy),
    A growing Aging population (Reel Aging),
    Reproductive Justice (Reel Reproductive Justice).

Together with issue leaders, national and state level partner organizations, and on the ground organizers, we are using these collections to reach critical audiences and move the dial toward meaningful change and impact.
