DocedgeKolkata Announces New Awards Whickers Docedge Bursary

The Whickers will be awarding a brand new Whicker grant at this year’s Docedge Kolkata in India. The Whickers Docedge Bursary is worth £3,000 and will be granted to a project elected for DocedgeKolkata this March that best meets our criteria.

In a nutshell, we are looking for an emerging director with a real flair for innovative storytelling and an ability to shed unique light into a hitherto unknown or unseen world. It is envisaged that the money will be used by the winner to continue the good work of Docedge, namely to secure targeted, international expertise to help the film find its audience in the world.

The Whickers’ Artistic Director Jane Ray said, “I have loved coming to Docedge Kolkata, but always leave a little sad knowing that some of the projects I come across do not have access to the same kind of development, training and distribution networks that are available where I come from in the UK. I hope this is a tiny step towards redressing the balance.”
