The Rise of Documentary Film - The shocking truth

The Rise of Documentary Film - The shocking truth | Media, Politics, Religion, Human Rights | Scoop.it

Documentaries such as “Blackfish” may also fill a gap in investigative journalism, as fewer newspapers and broadcasters invest in long-term projects.

Yes, it is competitive, Solomon, but there is $45 million, so if your ideas are strong and the match the criteria for the programme, I am sure you will stand a good chance. Do feel free to use the link I provided and ask questions directly to them.
