Learning by doing

The DocsBarcelona School program is designed to ensure the access to field practice to all students, as we consider experience the basis for learning in the trade of film making.

Hence, Learning by doing can rightly be considered the DocsBarcelona School motto. Theoretical knowledge is all-important as a basis for progress in the audiovisual learning, but to fully assimilate it we believe it is necessary to put it into practice through a series carefully programmed exercises.

In all subjects the same indication is given to the faculty: “Design the kind of course you would like to receive as a student.”
