Feature and documentary stories have a lot in common. In both, we follow the main characters, watch the conflicts being resolved, and experience dramatic events. But there is one key difference: documentary stories draw strength from reality. It is unpredictable and more surprising than the plot twists of the most bizarre Hollywood screenwriter.

We invite you to learn more about what non-fiction stories consist of, how they are told, and to study this incredible world of documentaries on your own after the lecture.
