Films by DocNomads Students

In each two-year edition of DocNomads around 100 student films are produced (semester and graduation films), and if all other film exercises were counted, that score would roughly double.  

The extensive production of films and exercises stresses the importance we give to practice in a filmmaking course. We believe that learning is accomplished mostly by doing: facing adversities, striving to grow and acquire knowledge through experience. Nonetheless we understand that individual practice alone doesn’t lead to self-sufficiency or success. Only through continual assessment, presentation of works, ongoing discussion and reflection – and only through good use of feedback given by classmates, instructors and advisors – can we walk toward our goals.

We also place major significance on creating a portfolio of films for each student: an individual collection through which the personal talents and acquired proficiencies of the filmmaker can be demonstrated to a broader audience.

Ultimately, we consider the students’ films a major asset of the program. We therefore promote their submission to festivals and encourage screenings in other film venues. To date, several DocNomads films have been screened in many festivals and countries, and have received a range of awards.

In this section we proudly present a showcase of students’ works. With limited space, only some of these many films can be displayed here. This selection will be periodically updated, showcasing films from different students.

Some films here are available in their full duration. But for others (in particular the most recent) only a trailer or excerpt can be shown, in order to not compromise festival submissions. 

The short documentaries in this showcase encompass three categories that we consider representative of students’ filmic work, namely: graduation films (26’), semester film assignments (7’-10’), and film exercises produced in teams (2’-12’).


Call for Application to the 2024-2026 (thirteenth) edition is closed.
