#DocYourWorld is a mash-up of events designed by a passionate group of doc lovers to inspire a deeper exploration into (and appreciation for) the diverse and innovative ways we collectively craft truth in story, image and sound.
Through a free series of panels, screenings and discussions, #DocYourWorld unites Columbia College students, faculty, alumni and industry professionals across the fields of cinema, television, radio, photography, journalism, creative non-fiction, dance, and interactive arts & media. By examining and celebrating our various approaches to the development, creation and instruction of “non-fiction” content, we hope to reclaim the word “documentary” and invest it with relevance and new meaning.
Leah, founder of TSP, hosted an event that consisted of musical performances composed by Cassandra Kaczor, a screening of Untold, and a panel with filmmakers Leah and David Zeiger, Cassandra, and founder of the Awakenings Foundation Jean Cozier. Read about the event here.
#DocYourWorld took place at Columbia College Chicago on May 3rd and 4th, 2016.
