What we're about


Austin Documentary Fans (AKA Reel Doc Fans) is a group that meets in person or online in hopes of exploring a free flow of information about people, places and things. The world around us is always changing. We are concomitantly searching for stories that are documented - to help us to gain a better understanding about our world and all of its intricate pieces. We welcome you to join us as we journey on this endeavor.

Here is an official definition
"A documentary film is a nonfictional motion picture intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record. "(source: wikipedia.org) 

Documentary filmmakers please send us information about your upcoming films, locations, needs. We are working on an online publication. Feel free to send us your press releases. (news magazine)
