We've teamed up with One World Media for this fellowship showcase of documentary shorts that tell untold stories from across Africa.

In partnership with One World Media, we are hosting an online screening of select documentary shorts directed by talented emerging filmmakers.

From a group of women in North-Eastern Senegal using renewable energy to fight desertification, to a female shepherd in Morocco connecting with her land, these shorts explore a fascinating range of experiences of women across Africa – reversing traditional roles, fighting stigma, reflecting on agency, and the complexities of migration.
