“A carefully curated selection
of documentaries from around the world
swooping down into extraordinary individual lives.”


99 is a free

and not-for-profit project


99 subtitles short docs

that otherwise would not

be seen enough, or at all


99 is available

in 7 languages

(and more soon)

Ivy is a young Swedish man who becomes the person he has always been: a woman.
Cristian is a blind athlete from Chile who tells us his dreams and fears.
Loss is a refugee from Ivory Coast who is illegally crossing Europe to reach Paris.

These three stories are true stories that you can watch here on 99.media.

99 is a video platform that streams short documentaries for free, in several languages.


You’ll find films with a universal resonance, stories from around the world that connect with people like you, who are curious about others – whoever you are, wherever you are from.


We work like a festival. Directors from around the world, determined to boost their films’ visibility, submit them to us. If our editorial aims match up, we’ll subtitle them into six languages, giving them access to half the planet.


We also project these films on the big screen, anywhere in the world, for new audiences to enjoy the emotional experience, dialogue and social impact, collectively.

Our aim is to democratize documentaries, by telling unseen stories, the stories of 99% of humanity.
