SDI is an internationally recognised documentary research centre based at Edinburgh College of Art/University of Edinburgh specialising in documentary training, production and distribution. It was set up in 2004 by Noe Mendelle. The institute runs a diverse slate of international activities in order to stimulate and inspire the documentary scene in Scotland and beyond. Straddling the gap between art and industry, SDI supports authored films driven by content and emotional experience. SDI's researchers have developed audience innovation tools and strategies through bespoke campaigns for some of SDI's award-winning films (I Am Breathing, Future My Love) and are committed to the promotion of documentary and filmmakers worldwide.
