About Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera English is a global English language channel that specializes in News, Current Affairs and Documentaries. AJE is part of the Al Jazeera Network – one of the world’s leading media corporations, encompassing news, documentary and sports channels.

Since being established in 2006, AJE has continued to grow in reach and popularity due to its global coverage, especially from underreported regions. The channel currently broadcasts to over 280 million households across 140 countries.

AJE’s in-depth approach to journalism has won it numerous awards and plaudits over the years.

For this Open Call, we are looking for proposals from filmmakers in Latin America that reflect strong visual storytelling as seen in Al Jazeera’s stable of Observational Documentary programs.
