Help us screen Global Witness’s first documentary The Landless, in London, Brussels and Brazil.

Global Witness invites agencies and/or freelancers to tender for The Landless film distribution plan and implementation of screenings for our target audiences.

The film tells the story of brave and resilient communities in the Brazilian Amazon who are defending their lands, reclaiming their rights and protecting our planet. 

We want to help create public interest and real buzz in key locations around the film and the issues it documents, as well as support Global Witness’s advocacy goals in the UK and EU: stopping the financing of deforestation and related human rights abuses, as well as stronger supply chain laws that hold companies accountable for their harms against people and planet.

Global Witness focuses on dismantling the systems making the climate crisis worse – such as the financing behind deforestation, corporate influence on government decisions affecting the climate, or government inaction on climate policy. 

Budget: £70,000
