Mimesis Documentary Festival


The Mimesis Documentary Festival is an artist-focused event encompassing short, feature, and expanded nonfiction ranging from traditional, experimental, ethnographic, and regional documentaries. We focus on personal, underrepresented, and culturally specific subjects that offer the most profound experiences of art made from life.

Mimesis is a not-for-profit initiative of the University of Colorado Boulder’s Center for Documentary and Ethnographic Media to create and foster a local, regional, and international network of documentary artists and scholars. We are artist-focused, community-oriented, and committed to providing a platform for the infinite potential of nonfiction media.

MDF is brought to life with support from our Festival Partners, the Colorado Office of Film, Television, and MediaCollege of Media, Communication and Information, the Department of Critical Media Practices, the Research and Innovation Office, and by your individual contributions.
