Far West Film is a San Francisco / Bay Area film production company founded in 2007 by director/producers Noel Dockstader and Quinn Kanaly. Their documentary films have been critically acclaimed for their dramatic, character-led storytelling and sense of purpose, and have been broadcast in the US and worldwide on National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, the BBC, and C4. 

The stories they tell are dynamic and diverse, with a particular interest in science, the environment, social issues, history, and exploration. Their collaborations include the just-released theatrical documentary, POINT OF NO RETURN, about the first attempt to fly a solar powered airplane around the world; EXTREME ICE for PBS/NOVA exploring the dramatic changes in our glaciers and ice sheets through the lens of photographer James Balog; and COLLAPSE, a two-hour special for National Geographic based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Jared Diamond.
