Thanks to all who attended the Doc Studies virtual info session held over Zoom on April 20th. A panel of alumni from recent years (Inés Vogelfang, Mahdokht Mahmoudabadi, Luz Zamora, Cacau Araujo, Tiffany Jiang) answered questions about their experiences in the program, shared excerpts of their work, and gave updates on what they’re doing now in the field. Lana Lin, the Director of the Doc Studies graduate program, provided insight into the curriculum, faculty, and structure of the program. Prospective students received application fee waivers for attending the session.

We’re currently accepting applications for Fall 2023. If you have questions about the program or would like to get in touch, please email

We encourage all prospective students to visit campus on May 23, 2023 at 7pm to attend Truth Be Told, our annual documentary film festival of original short films made by students in the current graduating class. Past editions of the festival can be found here. Each work is the result of a year of intensive study in documentary cinema – production, history, theory, and aesthetics. The screenings will be followed by a faculty-led Q&A with the filmmakers and a light reception. Admission is free and registration is required. Learn more about the films and students.
