Short docs are great. Small in size, but not in impact, they are little windows into other worlds, sneaky peaks into the theatre of real life. Birds Eye View joins forces with the UK's greatest short doc ambassadors, FourDocs, to present a selection of the most captivating nano-docs from emerging female film-making talent in the UK.
Presented in partnership with FourDocs.
