CANCELLED — The Essential Guide to International Reporting




Everything you need to know before you get on the plane…

This day-long workshop is designed to train the next generation of filmmakers, journalists and media-makers to cover stories from the wider world through interactive sessions that highlight the skills necessary to deliver outstanding reporting from developing countries.

Topics covered include the practicalities of international productions, how to ensure your safety and that of your contributors, interview techniques and how to engage audiences with stories from the wider world.

2) You are an experienced journalist, documentary filmmaker or media officer and want to brush up on your knowledge of safety, ethics and storytelling techniques.
