The Grierson trust

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 filmmakers through its outreach and mentoring scheme.

The competition for Grierson 2015 will open on 1 April. The closing date by which your entries must be completed and submitted is 1 June. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive notification about the awards click here.
