Our work falls into three main strands:- Training: From short beginners courses, to continuin professional development workshops for industry professionals, we train people ina wide range of documentary skills including camera, directing, editing, producing and essential business skills.
Information and resources: Through our website, www.dfgdocs.com, and our dedicated resources for members, we offer the most comprehensive database of contemporary British documentaries, along with reviews, tips and filmmaking guides and up-to-date information on documentary news, events and festivals in both the UK and throughout the world.
Production: Through our sister company, Mosaic Films, we produce content for UK and overseas broadcasters, ranging from schemes for emerging filmmakers to award-winning single documentaries. A single aim links all our work: to encourage, promote and support the growth of a strong community of documentary filmmakers and audiences.
