Docademia is a social initiative, which uses independent documentaries to bring social justice discussions to life in classrooms.
We offer a video-on-demand film catalog and Live Q&A service with the filmmakers/activists to connect independent documentarians from around the world with faculty and students. We help educators teach their students through authentic human connections and experiences, and partner with filmmakers to find new audiences for their creative work.
Join us to hear world-changing stories and to help inspire the next generation of students as they become leaders of social justice movements!
