This weekend, as the Oscars take center stage in the entertainment world, we at the editorial team have put together a DPReview film festival celebrating our favorite star: photography!

Last year, we featured fictional films starring cameras for a hypothetical single-day film festival that you could enjoy from the comfort of your own home. This time around, we are shifting our focus to real-life stories captured in documentary films.

Documentaries about photographers, the essence of photography, and exploration of the motivations that drive creators offer a treasure trove of learning and inspiration. These films can provide insight and possibly even life lessons.

We have curated a selection of seven documentaries and one interview to mix things up. While this list may not cover every fantastic documentary out there, we have carefully chosen each entry to create a cohesive and impactful viewing experience. Our aim is to showcase films that we genuinely enjoyed and that fit well together for a hypothetical single-day film festival – that’s the DPReview way.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
