New York Times and Kickstarter are partnering to debut six documentaries in six weeks, the media company announced Tuesday.

Starting this week with “Strike,” the films will be “shining a light on innovative short-form documentary filmmaking,” according to the Times.

The six documentaries, ranging from 10 to 30 minutes in length, are all originally funded by Kickstarter backers.

Viewers can find the documentaries on NYTimes.com and the new “Made With Kickstarter” channel in the Times’ video section.

The documentary topics include the story of a famous Japanese farmhouse; the last Ice Merchant; the journey of a 9/11 tree back to its original home; and the tale of a murdered Harlem man and his mother’s life today.
