Our Programs

Documentaries 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, civil rights, 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 and in launching Denverdocsoc’s Documentary & Media is Lit classes and camps. For All.

Please consider supporting us in any way you feel fit.
