Maysles Education believes that storytelling is key to people understanding their own lives, being able to connect to others, and engaging their individual and collective power to write untold stories. 

In this spirit, we offer comprehensive, hands-on documentary production programs for filmmakers of all ages. This includes on-site production and media literacy programs for adults and young people, as well as community-based partnerships where our experienced teaching artists work with students to develop storytelling, film production, and community engagement skills. We have partnered with a range of community organizations, schools, universities, and festivals in New York City and globally.  All programs are free or low-cost, with sliding scale available for those with a fee.
