Dogme 95 Manifesto

The ‘Dogme 95’ manifesto is a set of rules that are aimed to keep filmmaking simple. They ban special effects, digital methods of filming, superficial action and many other elements that are key in modern filmmaking. The movement was started to bring the emphasis back to the actors, story and film makers rather than overwhelming the story as well as the audience with special effects and over editing. The movement was started in 1995 by Danish directors Lars von Trier, Thomas Vinterberg, Kristian Levring and Soren Kragh-Jacobsen.
