OWM Global Short Docs Forum: Solutions Oriented Storytelling Private Roundtable

Thursday 2 February | 1pm – 2.30pm GMT

OWM will host a private solutions reporting roundtable ahead of this year’s Forum. This session builds on GSDF Labs in November 2022, following our research in collaboration with Solutions Journalism Network.

Media organisation representatives and producers will discuss how to support and encourage solutions oriented documentary films from the global south. This roundtable is an opportunity to analyse the current state of solutions journalism in visual storytelling, especially in the global south, acknowledge strengths and weaknesses of this approach and its current implementation, and come up with a desired roadmap for future productions, in line with needs and styles of various outlets.

Recommendations from the roundtable will be drafted into a report.
