Experience the reality of another. Change your own. Film works.
DWD Filmworks Inc. is an independent film studio based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I work with others to produce documentaries with a spotlight on stories of children and youth as vehicles for their own advocacy in challenging social issues and influencing change.
Experiencing the reality of another through film, presents opportunities to celebrate or challenge representations and portray our shared humanity through engaging stories with powerful visual examples in the language of inclusivity, diversity and equality. Our team works to facilitate films intended to provoke thought and inspire meaningful action while contributing to our cultural narrative through focused media, including theatrical, broadcast, streaming and educational platforms.
