Global Short Docs Forum

Global Short Docs Forum

Global Short Docs Forum is a new initiative by One World Media, connecting filmmakers from around the world with digital platforms looking for short documentary films under 30 minutes, in production or late stages of development with existing footage. There’s no restrictions on the topics, but we focus on underreported or local stories of a social, political or cultural nature.

16 filmmakers will be selected to attend the Forum, a 4-day residential workshop, all expenses covered. We're looking for projects up to 30 mins - inspiring stories from people and places less visible in mainstream media. Filmmakers will benefit from expert training, mentoring, and one-to-one pitch meetings with decision makers. Last year’s platforms included AJ+, BBC, Guardian, Lush, Zinc and ZoominTV.

One World Media supports strong, vibrant and independent media that empowers citizens, promotes justice and contributes to international development.

Deadline: 23 November
