Macmillan Films is an independent studio that produces films about art, thought and democracy. We have the largest catalog of ancient Greek plays available anywhere - for academic and personal use including all three plays of the Oresteia, The Bacchae, Lysistrata, Oedipus Rex and Prometheus Bound.

We also produce thoughtful art films including the award winning feature True Drama which contrasts Greek Drama violence with the way violence is deployed in modern cinema.

And and we have just staged Cato by Joseph Addison - George Washington’s favorite play - about the last day of democracy in ancient Rome. Below - Sempronius sends the insurrection leader to death:

Educational Mission

MacMillan Films is dedicated to producing thoughtful educational programing that instructs and inspires. Our mission is to produce programs that showcases Democratic values and the benefits of a pluralist society. Many of our titles are Greek dramas and documentaries about philosophy and democracy. We produce a lot on ancient Greek culture and art because so much of modern thought stems from the “golden era” of 5th century Democratic Athens.
