Our Mission

Social Cause Films (formerly What’s Up Doc Films) is a documentary film series highlighting and benefiting social causes. We aim to raise awareness for a variety of causes, while strengthening their impact. We cannot achieve our goals alone.

In the last 10 years documentaries and TV are increasingly being recognized as a key medium for communicating social justice issues and inspiring social change.
