Al Jazeera English
At Al Jazeera English (AJE) a hallmark of our documentary films is to go beyond the headlines of the hour to bring in-depth storytelling from those most affected by global events. In our Viewfinder series, we seek fresh perspectives from an untapped corps of filmmakers anchored in the emerging regions of the world. Our flagship observational documentary strand is Witness.
Our goal is to develop new talent in partnership with experienced and engaged documentary forums based around the globe. In these stories we seek to capture the impact of transformation through the lens of those living in the path of change. This open call is for filmmakers in Latin America to apply for our workshop with proposals that will be considered for commissioning.
