Short Documentaries

Award winning films between 3 and 30 minutes long

About This Project

We have been making documentary films for more than 10 years and within that time we have covered a diverse range of topics. One of the hidden benefits of being a filmmaker is that we get to learn a tiny bit about a lot of subjects just by being around it with our camera. We have had the privilege of filming topics like wood carving,  lost love letters, rowing, tanks, world wars, strokes,  equine therapy, Christmas, brain injuries, early Jewish settlers in Oshawa, painting and even our own family.

Some of our current documentary projects include a 30-60 minute doc for Santa’s Village in Bracebridge as well as a much darker film about mental health and abuse.

Here is our short documentary playlist in chronological order from newest to oldest. There are 18 films in total.
