What is Docademia? (Our Mission)

Docademia promotes the ideas of underrepresented voices by offering social documentaries and teaching materials to institutions of higher learning. We help educators teach their students through authentic representations, and partner with filmmakers to find new audiences for their creative work.

The mission of Docademia is to bring the unheard voices of marginalized communities into the social science classrooms. Our current solution offers:
1) A collection of non-mainstream short documentaries (selected among 1547 documentaries from 112 countries)
2) A set of tailored curricula for each documentary
3) An opportunity to directly connect with the filmmaker-activist in classrooms
