Change begins with the most powerful tool that we possess: narrative.
Stories shift perspectives, igniting a chain reaction that can quickly transcend communities, cultures and borders. SideXSide creates original films and brand-commissioned content that has raised millions of dollars for worthy causes, educated generations of students, and even altered federal policy.
Born out of the tenacity of America’s top newsrooms, SideXSide’s documentary and factual content illuminates the human experience through impactful narratives. The studio’s production hubs in Washington, D.C. and Vienna, Austria anchor its reach in producing internationally-renowned projects with leading companies, nonprofits, museum design firms, and film distributors.
SideXSide’s award-winning original films, like SXSW’s Audience Award winner TransMilitary and forthcoming documentary short Finding Us play on Amazon Prime, PBS, LogoTV and international broadcasters. Brand-commissioned and mission-oriented content drives the studio’s commercial arm, partnering with brands such as Hilton, Starbucks, USO, and The New York Times.
There is an immeasurable power in sharing the human experience. SideXSide’s work is underpinned by the enduring truth that narratives can provoke curiosity and inspire action.
