Dr Joanne Jordan nominated for Research in Film Awards

(6 October 2017)

Dr Joanne Jordan, from the Global Development Institute (GDI), has been shortlisted for the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s (AHRC) prestigious 2017 Research in Film Awards.

The film, ‘The Lived Experience of Climate Change: A Story of One Piece of Land in Dhaka’, has made the shortlist for the International Development Award: Mobilising Global Voices. 

Dr Jordan, the Project Coordinator, said: “I am really delighted that ‘The Lived Experience of Climate Change’ has been shortlisted by the AHRC for the International Development award. The film, directed by Ehsan Kabir, explores the findings of my research on the everyday realities of living with climate change through the eyes of Bangladeshi slum dwellers. This film is our attempt to raise some of the voices and stories from the communities living on the frontline of climate change. We must hear their stories.”

Hundreds of films were submitted for the Awards this year and the overall winner for each category, who will receive £2,000 towards their filmmaking, will be announced at a special ceremony in November.

Judges for the 2017 Research in Film Awards include Richard Davidson-Houston of Channel 4 Television, Lindsay Mackie, Co-founder of Film Club, and Matthew Reisz from Times Higher Education magazine.
