Kanopy's report shows that HFP has a strong presence in academic and public libraries thus fulfilling our mission to produced documentary films that will serve the public interests.

I often wonder who's watching the documentaries we make. My family supports my effort and has unconditionally sustained me in my work as a producer and director in challenging times of COVID when filming wasn't such a walk in the park. Even the cats support me at home by keeping me company late at night. However, who's watching remains the question that keeps me pondering at times. Are our films serving the purpose of helping others in the quest for answers and even more questions? Have we fulfilled the mission to serve our community by producing meaningful documentaries that hope to contribute to a better understanding of our world?

The answer to my questions came with a partial report from Kanopy, the curated streaming platform founded by Olivia Humphrey in 2008, the same year our family and Heritage Film Project moved to Charlottesville.

Kanopy's report shows that our films have a solid presence in academic and public libraries in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The following is a list of institutions where Daniel Chester French: American Sculptor, Black Fiddlers, and many of our other films are having considerable impact fulfilling our mission of informing and serving the public interests.
