The Freelancer Perspective: This week, a discussion with leading freelance journalists about the challenges they face covering world events.
The Frontline Club will be holding its first ever event in Kiev, Ukraine at Inveria on 18 December 2017 with a screening of “Holiday”, a short film by local filmmaker Zhanna Maksymenko-Dovhych.
The Frontline Club and the Frontline Freelance Register (FFR) will be running their first ever film night in Mexico + Q&A, in celebration of the FFR starting a new chapter, to support journalists operating in the country.
Join us for the first of 2 nights of the Frontline Club and Byline Festival’s New York Event for a film screening of MOSUL on 6th November 7pm. The event will be at the Bronx Documentary Center 614 Courtlandt Avenue, Bronx, NY 10451. This will be followed by a reception and a Q&A with film directors Olivier Sarbil and James Jones in conversation with Marcia Biggs.
By Josie Le Blond There’s no getting round it. Female journalists face exceptional risks when reporting events across the world. Especially as freelancers undertaking assignments alone, women must factor the dangers of gender and sexual violence into their assessments of hostile environments.
Following our event in New York with the Overseas Press Club of America (OPC), they will be coming to London to continue the discussion.
We will be bringing together a panel of freelance journalists and editors to examine what more needs to be done to make sure freelancers are supported by the news industry and have the resources available to prepare themselves for the risks of front-line reporting.
