Group Supervision for Documentary Filmmakers
Call for Entries

Supervision and group supervision is a confidential space that is typically used by therapists or people in helping roles to support their work – to reflect and provide structure to their working process.


The group will consist of two facilitators (Rebecca Day & Rupert Williams) & five documentary filmmakers, either already established or working on their first feature.


All sessions will be on a Tuesday, 6pm – 8pm GMT

2021 dates:
23rd February
23rd March
27th April
25th May
30th June
28th July


All 6 sessions will take place on zoom. Applications welcome from international filmmakers. Please be able to commit to at least 5 out of the 6 dates listed.

Therapy and making documentaries have a lot in common – both require us to consider how our presence can impact on others we’re working with; to explore and challenge the ethical boundaries within our work and to consider the wider world that impacts us and the films we make. In response to many filmmakers voicing a need for a similar shared space to work through these questions, we are piloting group supervision to explore how this type of support could deepen documentary practice.

Aims of Supervision

  • To anchor and connect with others in the face of dealing with trauma, complex relationships and the demands of the industry.
  • A space to think about sustaining motivation to tell your story, to step back when you need to and refocus.
  • To consider and challenge your own values, creating a space to debate ethical issues within the storytelling.
