Documentary Society

Furthering the impact of documentary films through outreach and education.

What We’re All About

The Denver Documentary Society is Denver’s only non-profit centered on presenting and producing documentary film, factual storytelling, media literacy and innovation; while producing and assisting others to create non-narrative work.

It is a natural extension of our disruptive efforts in producing DocuWest, the city’s only documentary film festival in 2008 and Denverdocsoc Films, our social justice film production company in 2014.


We’re committed to elevating the impact of documentary filmmaking through programming that brings filmmakers and audiences together.

DocuWest Film Festival Returns October 17-20, 2024. More Info Below.
