Documentary Media Research Centre

The DMRC focuses on documentary as the “creative treatment of actuality”, as John Grierson defined it, with an emphasis on the two terms: “creative” meaning current, multidisciplinary and multiplatform forms of representation and “actuality” as a reference to subject matter that is discovered in the situated conditions of the world. The term “creative” is also used to signify the importance of creative activity or research-creation methodologies for practitioners who are members of the DMRC. One of the unique aspects of the DMRC is the fostering of research and creative activity across a diverse range of media, including film, photography and new media.
