(L-R) Peter, George and Teddy Kunhardt filming Living With Lincoln

Kunhardt Film Foundation (KFF) is a not-for-profit organization that produces, preserves and distributes free educational media, including interviews, documentary films, and teaching tools about the people and ideas that shape our world.

KFF was founded by a family of filmmakers, who produce award-winning documentaries that explore social justice, history, politics, the arts, and culture. These films have introduced a generation of viewers to American presidents, senators, artists, cultural and civil rights leaders. They have explored the individuals behind social movements, revealed the inner workings of cultural institutions, and captured times of national tragedy. A focus of many of these films is the role of moral leadership.

Beginning in 2018, the Kunhardt Film Foundation committed to making these films available to the public, as well as the full-length interviews under the banner of the Interview Archive. This fast growing multi-media resource includes interviews with activists, leaders, journalists, writers, artists, historians, celebrities, educators, athletes, and ordinary people who have extraordinary stories. 

The Archive contains interviews on leadership, civil rights, the women’s movement, mass incarceration, arts, culture, and history. It includes personal storytelling from John Lewis, John McCain, Gloria Steinem,  Warren Buffett, Joan Baez, Bryan Stevenson, Ava Duvernay, Cornel West, Pete Seeger, Ta-Nehisi Coates, former U.S. presidents, and hundreds more.

KFF creates standards-aligned multimedia educational resources. Our commitment to open access to the use of high-quality content, has created a new model for the role of documentary film and interviews in education.
