About

We believe in the transformative power of documentaries to inspire and educate the next generation of changemakers. 

SIMA Academy utilizes the storytelling power of award-winning global short documentaries to nurture globally competent and socially active learners worldwide.

SIMA Academy is a goldmine for educators advancing 21st century education. Our curatorial emphasis on Global Citizenship, the SDGs, Human Rights and Social Innovation, makes each documentary a powerful tool for sparking conversations, challenging perspectives, promoting critical thinking, and inspiring service learning.
