Reel London 2005
Reel London was a new initiative for emerging documentary filmmakers, which highlighted the richness and diversity of voices present in London, whilst training and nurturing new talent through the production process. The concept is a partnership between DFG Films (which has since merged with Mosaic Films), Film London and ITV London. Each half-hour documentary was screened on prime-time television on ITV London.
