According to recent research in the UK, 9 out of 10 film and television workers have experienced a mental health issue - and that was before the Corona Crisis. A panel of filmmakers, commissioning editors, trauma experts and policy makers discuss ways to handle difficult content for documentary film and factual TV makers. The session aims to raise awareness of practices that encourage good mental health, while focusing attention on the ethical and emotional challenges of working with vulnerable contributors, filming in hostile environments and navigating these uncertain times.
The session is being produced by Gavin Rees (DART: Centre for Journalism and Trauma) and speakers will be confirmed soon.
Running time: approx 75mins.
All Digital Industry Pass Holders can register to watch the session live on Zoom and a recording will be available on our Doc/Player platform soon after the event.
