Our Programs

Documentaries Do Make A Difference

Our love for documentary film differentiated us when we launched DocuWest, Colorado’s first documentary film festival in 2008. Since then, our consistent programming of relevant stories about music, art, politics, queer issues, social justice, and the environment have enabled us to build strong relationships with many documentary filmmakers, audiences, donors and distributors from around the world.

This makes us uniquely situated to expand our connections and alliances so we may curate and collaborate on year round programming focused on factual stories.

Please consider supporting us in any way you can.
