Hello Guest, Log in!


Founded in 1983, our mission is to provide the best media programming available on critical social and global issues to classrooms and communities to help advance awareness and encourage action on the most important concerns of our times.

Video Project collection features programs for all ages from over 200 independent filmmakers, including Oscar and Emmy winners, as well as films that aired on Showtime, HBO and PBS. Our films are regularly honored with top festival awards and with critical praise from major review publications.

Most Video Project films are offered with limited public performance rights for public, noncommercial screenings. Educational/institutional streaming options are also available.


Video Project was founded in 1983 by Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Vivienne Verdon-Roe (Women for America, For the World) and Oscar nominee Ian Thiermann (In the Nuclear Shadow: What Can the Children Tell Us). View Vivienne's Oscar Acceptance Speech. View Women for America, For the World.

After a number a changes in stewardship and organization, Video Project was pleased to return to its roots as a non-profit in 2019.
