The 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.
HistoryThe 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.
In 2007, The Video Project was acquired by San Mateo-based media company Specialty Studios, helmed by Steve Michelson, a leader in film production and distribution in Northern California for over 30 years, and a pioneer in media authoring, technology and impact.
