Mission

DocFilm provides a structure for collaboration among artists, educators, policymakers, and scholars in the public and private sectors who are committed to exploring and developing new forms and functions for documentary filmmaking. DocFilm functions as a production hub and incubator in which individual filmmakers, researchers, community members, and entrepreneurs pursue a variety of projects, whether they are emerging talents or established veterans. In addition, DocFilm supports applied research initiatives and critical discourse, from large-scale grants relating to documentation to conferences on the documentary tradition. Dialogue, cooperation, and support among its partners across campus and in the community guide DocFilm’s activities and primary objective to make SF State and the San Francisco Bay Area a center for excellence in documentary film production, culture, exhibition, and research.
