2014 documentary study abroad

Actuality Media coordinates summer programs for current students and recent graduates interested in video, journalism, new media, social entrepreneurship or telling stories that matter. In each program students travel to a developing international community and learn how to produce a short documentary film about a social entrepreneur, nonprofit organization or other changemaker working there. We are now accepting applications for our 2014 documentary outreaches, heading to Ecuador, Kenya and Cambodia.

You can check out our production schedule at or read more about our documentary outreaches at There are also past films, behind-the-scenes photos and student testimonials on our website. For questions, contact Robin Canfield, the Outreach Program Director at
