About the Documentary Film Series
The Documentary Film Series is a joint partnership between The San Francisco Foundation, Northern California Grantmakers and Cal Humanities, featuring films supported by The San Francisco Foundation’s Documentary (Doc) Fund.

The Doc Fund supports films exploring timely and compelling social justice issues that have been historically underexposed, misinterpreted, or ignored. By investing in the early production of documentary films, The San Francisco Foundation catapults Bay Area visionaries into theaters throughout the region and nationwide. Through their unique lens and powerful storytelling, film has the power to lift our imagination, change our perspective, and bring to light critical issues that compel us to take action.

Documentary films are an incredibly powerful tool for telling stories and advocating for pressing social justice issues. This new film series will provide an opportunity to meet the filmmakers of some of the most celebrated documentaries to come out of the Bay Area.
