Topic is an ambitious new entertainment & storytelling studio from First Look Media, dedicated to working with creators at the forefront of culture. From Academy Award®-winning films (Spotlight) to television, audio and digital, we explore a wide range of subject matter, both fiction and nonfiction, with an emphasis on stories of consequence. On Topic.com we focus our efforts on visual and audio stories programmed around monthly themes. Our approach – challenging, compelling and unconventional – reflects our commitment to discovering and amplifying independent new voices, and supporting established ones.

You can follow us everywhere: On Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vimeo, iTunes, and YouTube. Watch our videos on television by downloading the Roku App. More platforms coming soon. You can listen to our podcasts on iTunes, Luminary, and Stitcher.
