Program Overview

MDOCS is an interdisciplinary collaborative presenting the stories of the human experience in documentary media and technologies: old and new; visual, oral and written; analog and digital. Providing resources for and fostering collaborations among Skidmore's academic programs, documentary practitioners, and community partners, MDOCS invites students, faculty and staff to learn and use the documentary arts for critical inquiry, discovery, civic engagement, and exposition.

MDOCS, on its own and in collaboration with other programs offers classes in the principles of documentary and instruction in documentary filmmaking, audio storytelling, and exhibition, among other documentary forms. In addition, the Saratoga-Skidmore Memory Project, internships, and summer Storytellers' Institute support Skidmore students, faculty and staff as they develop documentary projects in partnership with the community.
