Outlander Fan Documentary FAQs


What is the Outlander Fan Documentary about?

The documentary is about us, you, the fans. All of us. It's about how this story, the story of Outlander has reached so many corners of our lives. It has emotionally changed us. It helped us through difficult situations and been there for us during times of heartache and illness. It has given us inner strength. It has inspired us to achieve personal goals. It is in our hearts and in our heads as we start on transformational journeys. It's about the connections that we have made with individuals throughout the whole world. It is the life-long and one-of-a-kind friendships that have been forged. All of this is because of one woman (Diana Gabaldon) who decided to write a novel. She gave us these strong, loyal, brave, complex, lovable, and sometimes not-so-lovable characters. Then the story turned into a TV series, and the story came to life before our eyes. Finally, we have the beyond-talented actors who play these characters. Many of us are inspired daily through their kindness, charity work, entrepreneurship, and their genuine personalities. All of this magic is mixed up all together and it has caused a ripple effect. This ripple effect is the Outlander Fan Documentary. Join us to be a part of this worldwide celebration of our incredible fandom.

Why are you making this documentary?

The documentary is "A love letter for the fans, cast & crew of Outlander." It is about the fans of Outlander. Dedicated to those suffering from illness, tragedy, and life challenges, their loved ones, and caregivers. The Outlander Fan Documentary project was created by Cynthia Dawn. Her husband, Keith, a fellow Outlander fan, passed away in 2017 from cancer. The love and support of the Outlander fan community is part of what helped Cynthia during some of her darkest moments of grief. Through this experience, she met other fans who also found comfort and support this way. Their stories are remarkable, heartwarming, and uplifting. Telling other's stories became an important part of Cynthia's story, too. For many, this fandom has a way of connecting, inspiring, and comforting. The documentary is going to showcase and follow these remarkable heartwarming fan stories, to lift them up, to bring more people together, and highlight some of the truly good people in the world of the Outlander Fandom.
