Documentary Films

MacArthur’s media grantmaking supports the production of social-issue documentary films on important contemporary topics, intended for a broad audience. Over the last 30 years, the Foundation has supported over 200 films that combine exceptional storytelling with in-depth journalism. These films are often used in educational, community, and policymaking settings to spark conversations and activities that contribute to social and policy change.
