      "Before the Flood was entertaining. I laughed much of the way through because it was so ridiculous. We're told that climate change will destroy mankind by a private-jet-flying, yacht-motoring, multi-mansion owning Leonardo DiCaprio while he tells us to turn down our thermostats and walk or ride bikes everywhere. No thanks."

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Anyone can produce a short documentary film nowadays. In a featured article written by Bryn Beausoleil, she mentioned that there has been a rapid rise of short-form documentary films in 2018’s cultural and technological landscape according to reports on South by Southwest (SXSW), an annual film and music festival that begun in 1987 and held in Texas, Unites States. The advent of the internet and the growing popularity of filming devices such as DSLR and mirrorless cameras paved the way for the increase in digital contents available on different media platforms today. This means more opportunities for indie actors and filmmakers. From ‘dull and long’ to light-hearted and short, documentary films have surely won the hearts of the youth as they get carried away with heart-moving films. This is true, especially in China. In a research report released by China Netcasting Services Association, an increase in the number of people who choose to watch documentaries online was observed. Consequently, the documentary category landed 5th among online video users in 2017. Moreover, according to Stephen Follows Film Data and Education, sixteen years after the turn of the century, the number of documentaries now make up a higher percentage in the market, taking up 13% of all the movie releases. A mind-boggling question today would be “What drives the documentary competition?” Perhaps, the answer lies in the enthusiasm of people for rawness and nonfiction cinema.
