Actuality Media leads documentary-focused study abroad programs for people who want to tell stories that matter. Our students travel around the world to learn and practice the art of nonfiction storytelling. On each trip, students produce documentaries that feature the work of international changemakers during a month-long outreach. In 2020, Actuality Media is taking student crews to Cambodia, Morocco, Vietnam and Ecuador. All the program details including behind-the-scenes photos and student reviews are at https://www.actualitymedia.org/documentary-outreach/.
Each year Actuality Media holds a Documentary Video Competition and the winner receives a full scholarship (valued up to a $3800 USD) to any of our upcoming Documentary Outreach Programs. To enter, filmmakers need to produce a short documentary (5 minutes or less) that features a changemaker in their own community. Submissions are now open and full details are at https://www.actualitymedia.org/scholarship-competition/. You can see the films/filmmakers that have won in the past 3 years at that link above.
