The Documentary Producers Alliance (DPA) is a working group of more than 100 documentary producers nationwide that advocates on behalf of producers and the health and welfare of the documentary industry. Documentary producers sit at the nexus of financing, creativity, production and distribution. The DPA promotes a better understanding and acknowledgement of the documentary producers’ unique position. Our work fosters sustainability and inclusivity in documentary filmmaking by sharing knowledge, collaborating internally and with key stakeholders, in order to establish best practices within the field. The DPA was founded in 2016.
