About CIJ Film Week
15-19 January 2013
Seven exciting investigative documentaries, including six UK premieres were shown during the 2013 CIJ Investigative Film Week: Cotton for My Shroud (India), Bahrain: the Forbidden Country (France), Tracked! (France), The Poison in Our Homes (Romania), Blood Coal (The Netherlands) and The Murder of the Honeybee (The Netherlands) will all be seen in the UK for the first time. Law of the Jungle (Denmark), which has had a limited UK release will also be shown.
As part of Film Week, we also held a Webdocs Workshop and Screenings. Webdocs is an emerging genre of storytelling: a mixture of documentary filmmaking, data visualisation and computer games. It is becoming an invaluable tool for investigative journalists working for the web.
