We have now finished assessing all applications for the 2020 iteration of our Grierson DocLab training scheme.
The Grierson Trust commemorates the pioneering Scottish documentary maker John Grierson: the man widely regarded as the father of the documentary. Each year, The Trust celebrates the best documentary filmmaking from Britain and around the world with the British Documentary Awards - more fondly known as The Griersons - as well as encouraging young filmmakers though its DocLab Training and Mentoring Scheme.
