Documentaries & Film
Vegan documentaries are changing the world!
How many times has a movie completely altered the way you think about a crucial issue? Everyone loves movies, but harnessing the power of cinema to advocate on behalf of non-humans is a powerful tool. Documentaries expose the truth undeniably through physically documenting subjects in a shareable format, and allow experts to speak on topics ranging from health to ethics to animal behavior–all in one production.
The Vegan Truth published a survey in which 8,000 vegans were asked what motivated them to become vegan, and 42% reported videos and movies being a leading motivation. The power of a movie to change one’s mind cannot be understated.
Especially in today’s day and age, digital clips have the ability to go viral and document the truth, unlike any other medium. It’s impossible to deny the reality of the plight of animals exploited for human use when that heart-breaking undercover footage fills the screen.
Similarly, documentaries are able to bring the environmental and health perspective of a vegan lifestyle right to your living room. Movies make us feel all sorts of emotions, but the ones that change our lives deserve the highest praise.
Documentaries deliver unique approaches
The market for vegan documentaries is expanding rapidly—with films such as Game Changers changing the game by appealing to a hyper-masculine market. The power of storytelling can reach individuals who would otherwise never consider veganism to be a viable lifestyle.
As the market expands, new approaches to advocating the pursuance of the vegan lifestyle emerge. Shawn Stratton founded the International Vegan Film Festival in 2018, a perfect testament to the expanding market and the desire to create a community around the experience of consuming content furthering the vegan notions. Documentaries allow us to provide the voice for the voiceless through both entertainment and honest documentation of truth.
