Summary

This project will provide emerging filmmakers and journalists from developing countries with access to media training and a Fellowship, which gives them a production grant, mentors and training to complete their reporting. We know the vital role of a free and plural media in opening our eyes to diversity of the world around us. We give new talent who may be looking for their first director role or their first solo investigation the backing to tell under-reported stories.

Challenge

Journalists and filmmakers are a vital part of shaping perspectives and making change happen. While the demand for new voices and stories from developing countries is high, it can be hard for people early in their career to break through and reach a global audience. At a time when media around the world is being questioned and oppressed, we see how crucial it is to seek out and champion filmmakers and journalists that are bringing us authentic stories with integrity and creativity.

Solution

Our projects gives aspiring filmmakers and journalists both the advice, mentoring and connections they need to produce international stories. The first step is practical media training that covers ethics, safety and storytelling. Then we invite them to take part in our global media Fellowship, which is a year-long programme giving emerging filmmakers and journalists an opportunity to experiment and learn, with industry experts that will set them on their career path.

Long-Term Impact

The project will be a springboard for emerging filmmakers and journalists from developing countries to develop their stories and give them a solid entry point into the media industry. We know our projects are working when we see media coverage that is engaging and presents complex international topics to audiences in an understandable and accessible way.
