Where to start with directing documentaries

Instagram Live  | Fri, 8 Oct | 4pm (UTC+1)

For the third series of our OWM in convo IG Live events, we’re hearing from the winners of the One World Media Awards 2021 – from how they took their first steps in the industry, to some of the best advice they’ve learned along the way, as well as an invaluable peek behind the scenes of their award-winning reporting.

For the next session, we’ll be joined by Sam Soko, an award-winning director, producer, and editor based in Nairobi, Kenya.

Sam directed the documentary SOFTIE, which went on to win the OWM Feature Documentary Award 2021. We’ll hear all about his journey into filmmaking, how his team at LBx produced this powerful documentary and his advice for new directors in the industry.

The conversation will be streamed live on our Instagram. To join the event, simply follow us on Instagram @oneworldm, head to our profile at 5pm on the date of the event, and click on our live story.
