In this article, Ana Rosa Marques discusses the origins and development of CachoeiraDoc, an annual documentary film festival organized since 2010 by the faculty and students of the Film and Audiovisual Program at the Universidade Federal do Recôncavo da Bahia (UFRB) in the Northeast of Brazil. She argues that, beyond an artistic event celebrating cinema, CachoeiraDoc has been a space in which the university and the residents of the small town of Cachoeira enter into a fruitful dialogue, exchanging knowledge and ultimately engaging in community building.
