February 29, 2024

BETHESDA, USA/OXFORD, UK, February 2024The Media Education Foundation (MEF), leading producers and distributors of educational documentary films and other resources that critically examine U.S. media, is thrilled to announce the launch of its own custom streaming platform. Developed in collaboration with Cadmore Media, this new state-of-the-art platform is designed to enhance the way universities and other educational institutions access and interact with MEF’s catalogue of more than 170 documentary films.

“Our partnership with Cadmore Media is a testament to MEF’s commitment to remaining a fiercely independent producer and distributor of educational documentaries,” said Alexandra Peterson, Director of Marketing and Digital Strategy at MEF. “This collaboration underscores our dedication to offering our customers the most current options and trends in educational streaming media. On this new platform, we’ve created a highly curated experience for our users that situates them in an online environment stocked exclusively with educational films. Users can trust that on our platform, they’ll have only the best teaching tools at their fingertips.”

MEF is one of the nation’s leading producers and distributors of documentary films focused on the social, political, and cultural impact of U.S. mass media. Over the years, MEF has collaborated with some of the foremost media scholars in the world on titles tackling a range of issues related to U.S. media culture, from corporate media ownership to mainstream news coverage of U.S. militarism and war to dominant commercial media representations of race, gender, sexuality, violence, and class. These titles have been integrated into educational curricula and used in college and university classrooms across the U.S. and around the world to foster critical thinking about mainstream media narratives.

This new streaming platform, tailored to seamlessly integrate with universities and educational institutions, will only enhance MEF’s ability to engage students on some of the most high-stakes issues and debates of our time.
