The Syria Campaign announces Netflix documentary
We’re delighted that The Syria Campaign, who pitched at our film event at Channel 4 in July, has announced their documentary, 'The White Helmets' will premiere on Netflix on 18th September. The documentary follows three volunteer rescue workers who are a part of the White Helmets, nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize, in Syria and Turkey as they save civilians affected by war. The documentary will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before becoming available on Netflix.
In July we held a live crowdfunding event at the Channel 4 cinema, celebrating film and documentary. The Syria Campaign made a fantastic pitch for funding for their outreach work surrounding ‘The White Helmets’. We were so pleased to be able to support them and can’t wait to watch the documentary!
