RealWorld’s brand is implicit in our name – documentary content that delivers a real and intimate look at the world today. Through the countries we visit and the real life characters we meet, RealWorld crafts stories about cultural identity, social justice, human rights and the future of the planet.
RealWorld takes an organic approach to filmmaking. We conceive, propose, finance and produce all aspects of our work, travel internationally to capture the content, then craft them to completion at our studio in Vancouver, Canada. This holistic approach to filmmaking creates deeper relationships with the communities and characters we meet – intimate access that is the hallmark of RealWorld's success.
RealWorld Media is led by the filmmaking team of Carmen Henríquez and Denis Paquette.
Friends since film school, they forged a hands-on creative partnership that now spans two decades, conceiving, capturing and crafting real world stories. They remain focused on themes of social, economic and environmental justice, earning intimate access to under-represented and marginalized communities, characters and cultures globally.
