One of the most prestigious documentary references in Spain and Latin America is the Master of Creative Documentary imparted at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Recognized theorists and practitioners come together and taught master classes and seminars with the aim of forming a new elite of filmmakers each year. Among them we highlight Josep Maria Català, Roman Gubern, Isaki Lacuesta, Ricardo Iscar, Elisenda Ardevol, Josetxo Cerdan, Esteve Riambau, Casimiro Torreiro, Antonio Weinrichter and Santos Zunzunegui.
This year, the Masters has a new line of work in terms of student practical projects. In this 14th edition, the Master Degree incorporates a line of specialization in interactive documentary, formed by a set of lectures and tutorial classes and the production of a project at the end of the term. Television channel ARTE (France), ITVS (USA) and international forums like the prestigious IDFA (Netherlands) and the ICCA (Spain) have already begun to develop this hybrid documentary opening even funds that support this line of creation.
