Film Division

Our award-winning film division includes a long history of acclaimed documentaries that interweave music and message for a positive takeaway, stretching back to 2005, when we were an official selection at the Globians Film Festival in Potsdam, Germany [Cohen – Venuti]. Selections from our Rosand documentary have garnered over 80,000 online views and counting, and our jazz piano release was also widely well received. Two of our films can be viewed on Kanopy: our documentary on green construction,  “What Green Can Be,” (Official Selection of the Sedona International Film Festival and Sedona Green,  and featured on Marin TV) and  “Ireland, the Celtic Way” ( Best 3D Documentary at the Los Angeles 3-D Film Festival). We are always seeking wider distribution.
