Filmmakers of short documentaries with new and original narratives can apply for this program.

One World Media is organizing the Global Short Docs Forum online in October and November.

Twelve filmmakers will be selected to attend a series of online workshops, mentoring and one-to-one pitches with representatives of online platforms.

Applicants must submit a documentary project up to 30 minutes long, either in production or post-production, with existing footage.

The forum's focus is on films that have a social, political or cultural narrative, take a solutions journalism approach or give us a new perspective on the changes we want to see in the world.

Stories from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East, Russia or the Post-Soviet States are encouraged.

The deadline is July 22.
