Festival Director Mick Csáky says: “Last year, thanks to the generosity of the Bertha Foundation, I had the good fortune to secure a grant to develop a long-held ambition to stimulate an active dialogue between media producers in both the Global North and the Global South. And now, just eighteen months later, we are launching the very first One World Media Festival with the central theme “Creating Global Conversations”. Having had the privilege of being a trustee of One World Media for many years, I am thrilled by this opportunity to stage the very first One World Media Festival in association with Open City Docs at University College London.”
