The recent UWE report ‘Keeping it Real’ determined UK documentary to be “chronically under-funded, under-valued and rarely understood even by executives in the wider screen industries”. Among many recommendations, the researchers highlight the need to raise the cultural status of feature documentary and champion its social value. This session assembles international perspectives to explore how the case for documentary funding is made abroad and reflect on how it can be articulated in the UK.
