Economist Film Project

The Economist Film Project is an initiative by The Economist, in partnership with PBS NewsHour, to share the work of independent, international documentary filmmakers with global audiences interested in learning more about our world and its untold stories

From Nigeria to China, from maternal health to international development to cross-border tensions, the project will feature films whose new ideas, perspectives, and insights not only help make sense of world events, but also take a stand and provoke debate. Selected films have been jointly curated by The Economist and PBS NewsHour to bring to the fore work by filmmakers who share these goals. We welcome your voice in this conversation.

The films you can explore on this website were first featured in news segments aired on PBS NewsHour. More films will be added on a regular basis through the end of 2011, so check back frequently to explore new stories.

A forum for short, opinionated documentaries, produced with creative latitude by independent filmmakers and artists.
