NECS Documentary Workgroup

This group brings together scholars working on the field of documentary film (in the wide sense of the term, also labelled as non-fiction cinema). It aims to create a space for exchange of both theoretical and practical approaches to the genre and its various areas of study:

– Documentary Film Aesthetics (trends, sub-genres,…)
– Narrative Structure and Rhetoric of Documentary Film
– History of Documentary Film
– Documentary Film Traditions / Schools
– Documentary Film Festivals
– Non-fiction as Avant-garde
– Documentary Production/Distribution Industry
– Independent Cinema and Documentary
– Anthropology / Sociology and Documentary
– Television vs Cinema in the Documentary Field

Any member of NECS working on these fields (or just interested in this rich area of film studies) is invited to join.
