World Stories

A collection of thought-provoking and inspiring documentary films about the world we live in
– made by acclaimed filmmakers.

 

We target a global audience through local and national broadcasters in low and middle-income countries, as well as world-wide and regional satellite channels.

The aim is to reach otherwise underserved audiences with high-quality journalism and compelling factual stories.

Because we believe documentary film, like no other, can inform people from all walks of life about the complex issues facing the world today.
