Sexual harassment is hardly new but the #MeToo movement has had important impact in many parts of the world and on parts of the media. It's become a critical area of investigation for journalists. Here are three journalists doing exactly that.

After her own boss attacked her, TV journalist Shiori Ito exposed a hidden history of sexual violence in Japan and put #MeToo on the map in that country. And Pascale Müller reports on sexual violence and politics at Buzzfeed News Germany. Cécile Andrzejewski has investigated sexual violence and harassment in medical settings.

Deadline to apply is over. 

For the first time, GIJN opens up a space for a one-on-one session with a TV editor to get advice on your investigative documentary project.

This is a coaching and mentoring session to help you figure out the best strategies to make a great film out of your investigation.

How does it work?

Conference attendees can apply for a 15 minutes slot.

Projects are matched with an experienced investigative documentaries editor.

GIJN will select the projects and get back to you with a meeting schedule.

Please note

We have limited capacities and cannot guarantee all projects will be matched.

We guarantee to keep material you send us strictly confidential and only to share it with the selection committee and the assigned mentor.

This is not a pitching, nor a commissioning session. Editors are there for you as pro bono mentors, to help you make your ideas become a good investigative documentary.
