International foundations for creative and participatory documentaries: Doc Society and The Whickers

- Introduction
Doc Society (formerly known as BritDoc) is a non-profit founded in 2005 committed to enabling great documentary films handling important social issues and connecting them to various social capitals globally. Its efficient network and effective management is already internationally acknowledged. The Whickers is a recently established in 2015, using the generous legacy of their namesake, a renowned journalist Alan Whicker, to fund and recognise original and innovative documentary. Even with its short history, The Whickers is now appreciated as the most important funding body for documentary makers. These two foundations globally supporting documentary makers are expected to provide more opportunities to creators in Korea and also in Asia. This talk will enable audiences to listen directly about their funding schemes, management and visions they have.
