The Guardian is seeking short documentary films from independent film-makers that reveal unique narratives of the world that depict communities and people in a process of change. Recent projects include Little PyongyangWhite Fright and The Tower Next Door.  On Oct 3, join us for a special webinar conversation about The Guardian’s programming vision, the projects they’re excited about, and how to pitch them.

With a daily multi-platform reach of over 4 million readers, the Guardian is editorially and financially independent and its investigative journalism uncovers unethical behavior and social injustice.
