About The Documentary District

Who We Are

We are The Documentary Distract and it’s our goal to help support independent filmmakers by creating a collection of documentaries.

At The Documentary District, we have always been huge fans of documentary films, shows, and non-fiction writings.

With so many outlets for creators to upload media, it has become increasingly difficult to find the documentaries that are buried in the 1,000s of big box office films on these sites.

We wanted to do our part to help filmmakers and documentary fans alike. We thought the best way for us to support these groups was to start a project where we compile a list of documentaries that showcases the best of what the genre has to offer.

Each documentary we upload will be reviewed and graded. One of the toughest parts in finding a documentary on a streaming service, is trying to discover if a documentary is worth your time…and their short descriptions usually don’t help!

Here is the grading scale for The Documentary District: Skip It (not worth the watch), Niche (worth the watch for those interested in the topic), Background Noise (worth having on while doing other activities), Worth It (worth your time), Classic (one of the best examples of the documentary genre).

We would love to have you submit your documentary. The more films and non-fiction writings we can showcase the better! To contact us use: DocumentaryDistrict@gmail.com.


When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.
