GSDF is open to applications from all parts of the world, for documentary projects up to 30 minutess, either in production or post-production, with existing footage. Twelve filmmakers will be selected to attend a series of online workshops, mentoring, and one-to-one pitches.
To encourage new narratives and underreported stories, GSDF focuses on filmmakers from areas with low production capacity or little global visibility, as well as underrepresented filmmakers in geographical areas of established media production.
GSDF has a special interest in films that have a social, political or cultural narrative, take a solutions journalism approach or give a new perspective on the changes we all want to see in the world.
Note, they are especially looking for stories from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East, Russia or the Post-Soviet States.
Application deadline: 5pm (BST), Thursday 22 July, 2021, that's 4am Friday 23 July NZT.
Forum dates: Oct-Nov 2021
