CAMD Pop-Up Course Gives Students First-Hand Oscars Experience

• from Intern

Each year, film fanatics and critics join together on the Saturday before the Academy Awards to watch screenings of recent classic documentaries as well as some of the best documentaries of the year including the Oscar nominees for Best Feature Documentary and Best Documentary Short. Called DocuDay, this sixteen-hour marathon is sponsored by the International Documentary Association. This year, a group of ten Northeastern students joined the crowd of filmmakers and fans in Los Angeles for a one-credit, four-day intensive pop-up course led by CAMD’s Bobette Buster, School of Journalism Professor of the Practice of Digital Storytelling.
