Tuesday 21st November is also United Nations World Television Day
In recognition of the increasing impact television has on decision-making by bringing world attention to conflicts and threats to peace and security and its potential role in sharpening the focus on other major issues, including economic and social issues, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 November as World Television Day (through resolution 51/205 of 17 December 1996).
World Television Day is not so much a celebration of the tool, but rather the philosophy which it represents. Television represents a symbol for communication and globalization in the contemporary world.
The 2017 Documentary Media Month theme is global citizens dedicated to showcasing real people, real places and real events from around the world.
The documentary film programme is the 8th Leicester Docfilm Festival.
The Documentary Media Centre project organises events, education based activities and workshops covering 4 areas:
- documentary film
- documentary photography
- documentary audio
- documentary new media
The pop-up Documentary Media Centre will be hosted on the 1st Floor of 10 Bishop Street, Leicester LE1 6AF.
