Are you a film-maker, videographer, or an aspiring one with a minority
background? Guardian News & Media is always looking for new voices as
part of our commitment to the diversity of our editorial content and
the contributors that we use.
If you belong to a minority group through your ethnicity, gender,
disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief, we invite you
to apply for a place on a Film Pitching Workshop with the Guardian's
Multimedia producers covering Current Affairs, Sport, and Culture
Ten short-listed film-makers/producers will be invited to join us for
a workshop at the Guardian offices in Kings Place, London on Wednesday
14th March 2012, to:
· Discuss how to approach commissioning editors and pitch your ideas
· Discuss the technical and practical needs to get your film made.
· Explore ways to encourage more producers from minority backgrounds
to make videos for the Guardian
· Create a link between new film-makers and Guardian editors
· Help Guardian editors to become more conscious of diversity and
inclusion issues that affect minority communities
· Aim to get your film(s) commissioned and made for our site
To apply, submit one or two Film pitches (max 300 words each) for a
3-5 min Film in Current Affairs, Sport, or Culture, plus details of
your previous work.
The deadline is midnight on Sunday 26 February 2012.
