Connecting The Human Experience Through Documentaries

Thrive Global
Documentaries are the TED talks of movies, or as Joel Douglas states, “The most honest form of film making.” Documentaries provide a raw, real look inside a story. Film makers of documentaries earn trust from audiences little by little as they tell the stories of everyday real life. Stories of humans that are shaped by experiences that have shaped their lives. Attending the largest documentary film festival in the country, The American Documentary Film Festival, AmDocs 2017, Jamie Redford stated, “this was an incredibly, true learning experience… and that is what documentaries are all about.” The filmmaker and environmental activist Jamie Redford received the Seeing the Bigger Picture Award, the highest honor given by the Festival (AmDocs) in Palm Springs.

Green Lights: The Redford Center and Sundance’s “The New Climate” Provide Support for Environmentalist Film

In 2016, to augment its creative efforts and fiscal sponsorship, the Center launched its very first grant program for innovative environmental films in development, handing out $15,000, mentorship, gear and distribution to grantees. From 282 applications, six winning projects (with 11 filmmakers, from first-timers to veterans) were picked to attend a December summit at the Sundance Mountain Resort in Provo, Utah. Read More
