ABOUT US

Over 30 Years of the Video Project

OUR MISSION
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.

OUR PROGRAMMING
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.

HISTORY
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.

The Video Project is the educational/institutional distribution arm of Specialty Studios, a full-service development and distribution studio for socially conscious media. Specialty partners with producers to enhance the impact of cause-related films by providing full ecosystem support and experienced management, partner development, and engagement campaign services.
