At Actuality Media, we lead documentary education programs for storytellers who want to reveal the good in our world. Travel with us on one of our month-long Documentary Outreaches to learn, experience and practice the art of nonfiction storytelling, while producing a short documentary film featuring the work of international changemakers.

Whether you are an experienced filmmaker or just ready to learn, we want you to join us.

Our crews are made up of more than just filmmakers. We are artists and photographers, explorers and researchers, writers and journalists. Everyone arrives with varied experiences, skill levels, and diverse interests, which contribute to our documentary projects in a unique way. Together, we are a band of storytellers, armed with cameras, out to reveal to the good in our world.
