As part of this year's Border Film Week, the Trans-Border Institute will offer the opportunity to all students to participate in a documentary making workshop.

This hands-on workshop teaches effective techniques for conceptualizing, shooting, and post-production documentaries with a distinct voice, compelling storylines, and engaging themes. 

Students learn to conduct and shoot interviews, how to illustrate content, and about the basics of digital editing. Clips from documentaries directed by Artenstein and others are used to illustrate and discuss relevant topics and strategies.
