Over 30 Years of the Video Project
Our mission is to distribute the very best in educational media and documentary programming on critical environmental, global and social issues to the widest possible audience worldwide, including colleges, schools, libraries, businesses, religious groups, government agencies and non-governmental organizations.
The Video Project collection features award-winning programs for all ages, including Oscar and Emmy award-winners from over 200 independent filmmakers worldwide. We are the exclusive or primary distributor for most of the programs in our collection.
We distribute thousands of programs every year to a diverse and growing network.
The 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). In 2000, the Video Project was acquired by Act Now Productions, a progressive media production company co-founded by former Sierra Club President, Adam Werbach. In 2007, The Video Project was acquired by San Mateo-based media company Specialty Studios, helmed by Steve Michelson, a fixture of film production and distribution in Northern California for over 30 years, and a pioneer in DVD authoring and technology.
