CDS serves as a resource for individuals and groups wishing to learn or develop documentary skills. CDS-sponsored courses taught at Duke University are open to area university students, and a new undergraduate certificate program allows Duke students to further concentrate their academic work in documentary studies. Graduates have an opportunity to take their knowledge abroad through the Lewis Hine Documentary Initiative, which connects young documentarians with the resources and needs of organizations serving children and their communities around the world.

Freshman dorms compete against one another to produce a short film that best captures their first year in college. Now in it’s fourth year, the festival has become a tradition and a rite of passage of the Duke University experience.

If you’ve ever been to a movie at Duke, you should probably be very grateful to Freewater.

Not only can you see a great movie for a decent price, there’s always the free water. A division of the Duke University Student Union.

Freewater Productions is a committee of the Duke University Union dedicated to the production of short Super 8 and 16mm films. All styles and genres are encouraged. They operate as a cooperative, with members teaching each other filmmaking and forming the crews of each other’s productions. They offer a series of workshops on every part of the filmmaking process, from writing to shooting to editing. Members are eligible to apply for grants given out each semester to make short films. Freewater Productions is an entirely student-run group, not affiliated with any University academic department. No previous experience is necessary to join, and everyone—student and non-student—is welcome. Freewater films are shown to the public at the end of each academic year at our annual screening in Griffith Film Theater.
