Al Jazeera English’s flagship documentary strand, Witness, showcases independent documentaries that place people at the heart of the story.
The Witness Initiative will showcase short character-led documentary proposals from early-career filmmakers to pitch at AIDC 2020 for the chance to share in up to $300,000 in commissioning funds.
Up to three projects will receive a $100,000 commission for a 25-minute documentary to be released on Al Jazeera English’s Witness across Al Jazeera platforms including television, online and apps.
