An initiative of DRI to evoke quality discourses among the young filmmakers and students through workshop on creative documentary. This intends to create an awareness and exposition to high quality artistic content of actuality storytelling. Documentor, visual actuality is taking place in small towns of India in the region where storytelling understanding is completely intimidated by the mainstream commercialism. Apart from sensitizing young minds, Documentor also places filmmakers with the audience to share in-depth artistic experience and unique individualistic concern of the created content in post screening dialogue. This is also extended to an intimate mentoring and incubation platform while young filmmakers are participating.
