Because great documentaries change the way we see the world, whether they uncover the stories that impact people’s everyday lives, illuminate us with the discoveries that promise a better future or shine a light on the lives of our fellow earthlings and the world around us, we dedicate ourselves to exposing films from every corner of the earth, giving a voice to the voiceless.

The Award ceremony will take place on the 23rd of June 2022 at the Whirled Cinema in London, United Kingdom, and also broadcast live. Awards and Trophies will be delivered for:
Best Feature Documentary
Best Short Documentary
