CampusDoc Film Festival CDFF is the first and only international journalism student documentary festival in The Netherlands and one of the few in the world. The student docs have come from: Qatar University in Doha, Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa and The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York. CDFF is first and foremost a student initiative. The festival brings out other talents in the students as well: there are volunteers to do the website design, branding and marketing. Still others try their hand at festival organization. Other journalism students do live and packaged video reports and live festival online coverage, while others serve as press photographers for the event. As for the CampusDoc participants, they learn to access and grow their networks in order to promote their own films. There is also a professional jury which announces the winning film at the end of the festival to a full crowd while another full crowd watches the simulcast of the award ceremony on a separate screen. Each year the festival is hosted by anchors from Dutch national TV news, staying true to the journalistic theme and mission of CampusDoc. We screen on five parallel screens in the prestigious Louis Hartlooper Theater in the heart of Utrecht, The Netherlands. In the last four years we’ve sold-out with a capacity of over 550 seats. Films that have been shown at the festival in the past have been bought by Dutch regional and national television. Other films have gone on to national and international film festivals
