About us

RealWorld is an international producer of documentary and factual content based in Vancouver. Established in 1998 by Métis filmmaker Denis Paquette & Chilean/Canadian filmmaker Carmen Henríquez, to date RealWorld has produced over 66 hours of content. Recent credits include season one of the documentary TV series “Power to the People”, “Native Planet”, “Face the Music”, “Closer to Home” and the feature length documentary “Cry of the Andes”.

RealWorld’s brand is implicit in our name – media that delivers a realistic and intimate look at the world we live in today. We develop and produce a slate of non-fiction programming and interactive content that explores a range of social, environmental and political themes. Through the communities we visit and the real life characters we meet, RealWorld travels the world to craft stories about indigenous identity, social justice, human rights and the future of the planet. Character driven and completely realistic, RealWorld takes an organic approach to filmmaking. Our team conceives, proposes, finances and produces all aspects of our work, travelling internationally to capture our content, then manage postproduction from our studio in Vancouver.

Our production studio provides a workflow for 4K digital production, multilingual versioning, interactive and online authoring. Both company principals are deeply involved in all aspects of RealWorld’s filmmaking and multimedia output.
