NEWS / PROJECTS / OPPORTUNITIES: Metropolis TV seeking young video journalists || 14/11/2010

Metropolis invites young filmmakers to act as correspondents by submitting journalistic videos to the station. Metropolis has built up an international network of documentary filmmakers and video journalists on six continents. Every week, the participants are asked to research a specific theme at their respective location and shoot a film about it.

Ten films are then produced and put online every week. The best reports are also used in a television show broadcast in the Netherlands, Belgium and Nicaragua. For the selected films, Metropolis pays a fee of €250 for online release and €500 for those that are televised.

Metropolis is a project of the Dutch public television network VPRO, with funding from the European Cultural Foundation.
