OUR MISSION

 

We believe independent documentaries are one of the most powerful ways students learn about the world and engage with the most pressing issues of our time. That is why GOOD DOCS champions creative documentaries that promote new ideas, social change, and human rights. As a boutique educational distributor, we facilitate personalized interactions with your film’s core audiences and design customized strategies to help you achieve your outreach goals. We connect GOOD DOCS films and filmmakers with a diverse community of educators, activists and students, to generate dialogue and spread your message. Most importantly, through our national educational sales campaigns we make money for our filmmakers.

 

 

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE

 

GOOD DOCS selects films that are thought-provoking, entertaining, and socially relevant. As filmmakers and activists, we care about your social justice agenda, and select documentaries based on the quality of the filmmaking and the film’s potential for positive social change. Our curated collection highlights labor and civil rights struggles, environmental activism, juvenile justice reform, multicultural visibility, the fight for gender equality and much more. Director Sarah Feinbloom, a documentary filmmaker herself (What Do You Believe?, In Search of the Heart of Chocolate, Earth Water Woman) has been successfully selling her films to the educational market for the past twenty years. She also has a Masters in Education and has taught high school and adult education. Sarah and her team understand the challenges, needs, and ambitions of independent filmmakers like you.
