Documentary film and journalism are, in many ways, rooted in the same traditions. Though focus on narrative often differentiates film from traditional journalism, it helps to remember that the earliest films were straightforward recordings of real life. Today, more and more documentaries are finding news publishers to be the ideal platforms for their work. From full-length movies to hybrid and interactive forms of documentary filmmaking, there is a whole spectrum of how stories are told using the medium of film.
