Here are links to some organizations and programs that may be useful to documentary filmmakers, including resources specifically for people of colour:

Documentary Organization of Canada  (DOC)


DOC Institute


International Documentary Association  (IDA)


Firelight Media - Documentary Lab


Kartemquin - Diverse Voices In Docs program

These are some of some key films that have inspired me (that I secretly wish I had helped produce). Interestingly, they are all narrative films, not sure what that means!
