Big Boys Gone Bananas!* recieves grant from Bertha BRITDOC Fund for Journalism

We've got some really great news! 

The Bertha BRITDOC Fund for Journalism is an international film fund dedicated to supporting long form feature documentaries of a journalistic nature. These nice people have been impressed by Big Boys Gone Bananas!* and has granted us £10 000 to support our ongoing legal costs. From their site:

"We are looking for films that break the important stories of our time, expose injustice, bring attention to unreported issues and cameras into regions previously unseen. This new fund recognises such films are often delicate and protracted, making them difficult to fund. With a mission to enable in-depth analysis of issues through long-form investigative filmmaking, we are particularly looking to work with filmmakers with a journalistic background or those who are collaborating with journalists".

If you are curious about the other grantees and their films, you can read more about them here. Thanks a lot, BRITDOC!

Great movie on how the corporate legal community acts against basic rights of free expression…

The true story about a Swedish filmmaker and a banana corporation. Dirty tricks, lawsuits, manipulation, and the price of free speech.
