We believe in the power of reporting.
In these troubled times, it can be hard to disseminate information.
Fake news, vested interests, advertorials, news outlets bought and paid-for by big business – what’s news, and what’s marketing?
We believe documentary filmmaking can change the lives of millions for the better.
We are here to provide a platform for important, illuminatory cinema.
Our festival aims to:
Discover new, bold filmmakers
Celebrate independence of thought
Provide a platform for unconventional storytellers
Champion diverse stories from all walks of society
Connect artists with audiences
Broadcast original voices
Create a documentary film community
