Frontline Club at Byline Festival: The World’s First Festival for Independent Journalism

Subtitled, ‘A Riot of Free Speech’, Byline is Britain’s first ever festival of journalism. There will be a mix of comedy, music, workshops, screenings, activism and debate. A gaggle of the great and the very-funny: John Cleese, Martin Bell, The Blow Monkeys, Luke Harding, Lenny Henry, Tom Holland, Hugh Grant, Jack Monroe and plenty of other people and bands you admire and love, all in one forest clearing.

Workshop: The Sochi Project on crowdfunding, self-publishing & independent documentary journalism

Photographer Rob Hornstra and writer and filmmaker Arnold van Bruggen have been working on The Sochi Project since 2009, documenting the development of the wider Caucasus region ahead of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. In this workshop they will guide you through production and publishing, teaching you how to survive in the ‘everything for free’ age, how to set up the project – allowing you to create and publish the stories the way you want, in your own voice, and to see opportunities and make your future.
