The Grierson trust
The Grierson Trust commemorates the pioneering Scottish documentary maker John Grierson (1898 - 1972), famous for Drifters and Night Mail and the man widely regarded as the father of the documentary.
Each year, The Grierson Trust recognises the best documentary filmmaking from Britain and abroad through the British Documentary Awards. The Trust encourages new filmmakers through its Outreach Programmes.
