Differential element of innovation: The documentary has become a laboratory of contemporary exhibitions, able to explore the convergence of ethics, aesthetics, art, thought, politics and identity. It is found, or should be found at the top of the list of contemporary social concerns. During the nineteen years since it started, the Master in Creative Documentary from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, has implemented training of students in this line of responsible experimentation and deep, essential creativity. At the same time, through its teaching staff, it has opened lines of research which, in alliance with various institutions and festivals, display the results of what has been a penetrating research on new aesthetics for today.

The Master in Creative Documentary is an innovating entity in the field of documentary teaching, within the revolution of this sector over the last decade. It is considered one of most prestigious university master degrees in the audiovisual area in Spain. Throughout its nineteen editions, its theoretical-practical teaching method has proven to be one of the most stable and effective.

From a theoretical and practical viewpoint, the master degree has helped to form a new generation of directors, who are aware of the valuable historic legacy of non-fictional films, their creative possibilities and the challenge and commitment involved in representing reality. It has also been a production platform from which 120 creation documentaries have been made, characterized by diversity regarding its conceptual, aesthetic and thematic concerns.

It also has the support of institutions such as Citilab of Cornellà, the Filmoteca de Catalunya, Fundació SGAE and the Institut RTVE.
