As far as documentary style you've got it pretty much nailed. Supporting what she's saying with clips and crediting the film is important. I'd maybe drop a slide in tab that shows her name at the start? Just so people know who they're listening to. I'd also slightly adjust the audio because in some parts the music is slightly louder than her voice, otherwise it's perfect ☺️

I agree with the poster above! I really liked the way you put the footage together, interweaving your interviewee and the films she was talking about.
I recently did a mini documentary/interview thing for my course so I have a few suggestions that may help!
I know you put her name at the very beginning but it wasn't very eye catching so perhaps put it in the corner when she's actually talking (and also who she is e.g. student) so that your audience know who she is.
At the beginning you could instead have a small title 'Favourite Films' or something like that in the middle to make it more eye catching or to the left hand side.
If possible I'd also turn the music volume down a bit as it's a little jarring/slightly difficult to her your interviewee in places.
Between 1.37 and 1.38 the music suddenly cuts out and changes, perhaps you could try fade it a little bit at the end so it blends a bit more? (Again less jarring for the audience).
Good luck <3 (P.S I love your friend's shirt! I have one too :'D)
