Economist Film Project Selects Docs for PBS

Economist Film Project Selects Docs for PBS

Thompson on Hollywood

The Economist Magazine is launching a collaboration with PBS News Hour called The Economist Film Project. The year-long initiative, which starts in January, seeks to showcase thoughtful and provocative documentary films from around the world. The Economist will select short and feature length films from established and emerging filmmakers on subjects that are in line with the mag’s interest in economics, the environment, social and human rights, government and politics, religion, media and culture.

Selected film segments will air on PBS NewsHour and online for the following year, and will be put in context with related Economist articles. The magazine’s deputy editor, Gideon Lichfield, says the project:

…aims to encourage filmmakers who have the same ambition. It will bring viewers new perspectives and insights in the form of films they might not otherwise see on the kinds of issues that The Economist itself covers.

PBS executive producer LInda Winslow hopes that the project will “bring important new voices to our reporting and enhance our audiences’ understanding of the world around them.”
