On Tuesday 18 February Vaughan Smith will attend the official opening of Frontline Club Bucharest in The Institute Cafe, which will serve as a home for upcoming debates and screenings in Romania. Over the course of three evenings, an impressive and challenging line up of speakers will debate issues ranging from the current situation in Ukraine to the role of social media in journalism. These first events will serve as a taster for future discussions that will take place in Bucharest as part of the Frontline Club’s International Parters programme.
In Bratislava, Frontline Club founder, Vaughan Smith, speaks to freelance journalist John D McHugh on freelance newsgathering in Afghanistan.
Description: VII Photo presents the work of three photojournalists Marcus Bleasdale, Ron Haviv, and Donald Weber, who witnessed this swift and intense conflict between Georgia and Russia, providing a sweeping narrative of both the media’s prominent and controversial role, as well as the sheer senselessness of the war that erupted in August.
