SF State’s Documentary Film Institute (DocFilm) enjoys a strong reputation in academia and the industry as a hub that connects students to professionals in the field, thus providing inspiring faculty development opportunities and offering forums and exhibitions that create a larger, more cosmopolitan community engaged with the issues of our time.
DocFilm is currently poised to ensure its position as a nationally recognized center of excellence through the creation of a multimedia journal for nonfiction films. This is a resource the industry currently lacks. Incorporating an innovative format and explicitly aimed at engaging a variety of disciplines, the journal would serve to greatly extend the SF State and DocFilm brands and reputations nationally and internationally.
