Oxford Brookes University Documentary Club

OBUDoC Manifesto:


  • We aim to promote the very best independent, international documentaries at all levels – in our great JHB (John Henry Brookes) Lecture Theatre  at Headington Campus over two semesters during the 24 weeks of our Academic years starting at 7 pm. We pride ourselves to engage not just the Students and Staff at Oxford Brookes University but also the public and community in Oxford to provide memorable experiences for all from documentaries which can inform, inspire and provoke thinking and discussion. 


  • All events are FREE of charge.


  • Our documentaries will  show many different points of view relevant to particular topics. Subjects of interest will range across various categories which include Sports, Politics, Human Interest, Science, Technology, Nature, Animal rights, History, Crime, Geography, Historical, Music, Fashion, Geography/adventure, Religion and Cults, etc.


  • We will show documentaries that we have been chosen democratically and have been suggested because of their funny, touching, provocative and inspiring narratives. The documentaries will be  fair, varied, unbiased and as neutral as possible.


  • We want to challenge the assumption that documentaries are boring, factual and  gloomy. We promise to bring to you cool, mind-blowing documentaries that will stay with you for days after you’ve seen them  and prove that compelling narratives can be produced.


  • We are convinced that documentaries should be shared and enjoyed with the finest company as if it were a shared cinematic experience. That is the reason we want to build a true documentary lovers community and share a  relationship of warmth and friendship united by the passion of your love for documentaries.  


  • To create a truly inspiring and engaging space of discussion and dialogue for each documentary screening.


  • We want to develop new audiences and to encourage further impact for the films we showcase. We aim to make Oxford a hub for interesting people, open minded and eager to discover the unthinkable.


  • We would love to support, inspire  and nurture new generations of independent documentary filmmakers. We welcome your views and suggestions.
