ABOUT CITIZEN FILM

In 2001, filmmakers Sam Ball, Sophie Constantinou and Kate Stilley Steiner founded a company guided by the belief that character-driven documentaries can provide audiences with a powerful means for engaging with culture and community.

Our collaborations have been presented on television (PBS, HBO, IFC, TLC, etc.) and featured at America's most prestigious venues for independent film: the Sundance Film Festival, the Museum of Modern Art – New York, LA County Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn, the Whitney, and more. We’ve worked with cultural institutions, community organizations and like-minded independent filmmakers to create more than 100 short films, several hour-long television programs, and new online multimedia documentaries that take advantage of today’s community-building technology.
