Original feature-length docs

Meridian Hill Pictures produces original feature-length documentaries and partners with nonprofit, foundation and broadcast partners on co-productions. We leverage our storytelling expertise in people-centered documentary storytelling, capturing intimate personal stories that connect to broader issues and context. Our understanding of the complicated funding and distribution landscape helps partners bring complex stories from idea to screen and broad distribution.

We regularly assist out-of-town documentary producers with production support when filming in the District. Building on our deep relationships with DC communities and experience collaborating with neighborhood groups, nonprofit organizations, schools, and city agencies, we can research characters and storylines, advise on production logistics, produce individual shoots, ingest media, and provide a temporary local production office hub.
