Current Workshops

NW Documentary workshops are packed with information and activities, allowing participants to immerse themselves in the creation of documentaries.

NW Documentary has years of experience training people from vastly different backgrounds and skill levels in how to use digital tools to express their personal vision and style. We keep classes small and flexible and invest a great deal of personalized attention in our students, customizing workshops to meet their learning pace, style, and passions.

We host three terms of workshops every year. The general schedule is: February-April (Spring term), June-August (Summer term), October-December (Fall term). Dates for each term are announced at the end of the previous term.
