Bangladesh Cymru Climate Stories
Bangladesh Cymru Climate Stories is a collaboration project between Dhaka DocLab, Bangladesh, and Wales One World Film Festival (WOW), UK. A total of 4 young filmmakers, 2 from Bangladesh and 2 from Wales, have been selected during an online workshop, organized by Dhaka DocLab in collaboration with Wales One World Film Festival and funded by the British Council’s International Collaboration Grants, on Climate Change Stories in March 2022. After the workshop that lasted for four days, the filmmakers pitched their documentary film projects on 11 June 2022. Out of all those filmmakers, 4 filmmakers were selected for grants to complete their projects.
The Climate Stories Film project is an initiative that is being implemented by Dhaka DocLab and Wales One World Film Festival with financial support from The British Council. The British Council has introduced International Collaboration Grants to support cultural partnerships in the UK and overseas and inspire independent artists to continue creative pursuits. So far, 94 projects from 41 countries have been completed with grant support from the British Council.
