In 2004 California Newsreel is celebrating its 36th year of distributing cutting edge social interest documentaries to universities, high schools and public libraries. Newsreel is the oldest non-profit film and video production and distribution center in the country. Over the past three decades we have brought institutional video users some of the most distinguished titles on pressing national and international issues. Currently we are a leading resource center for the study of race and diversity, African American life and history and African feature films and documentaries. In the years ahead we look forward to continuing our traditions of innovation and responsible advocacy.
