Launched in the fall of 2015, Field of Vision is a filmmaker-driven visual journalism film unit co-created by Laura Poitras (CITIZEN FOUR), AJ Schnack (CAUCUS) and Charlotte Cook (former Programming Director for Hot Docs) that pairs filmmakers with developing and ongoing stories around the globe. The mission of the Field of Vision unit is to combine artistic approaches to filmmaking with bold, investigative journalism. Inspired by Life Magazine and World in Action, the shorts and series emerging from FoV are being created by some of the top talent and most exciting new voices in non-fiction like Kirsten Johnson, Michael Palmieri & Donal Mosher, and Kelly Duane de la Vega & Katie Galloway. The visual documentary arm of The Intercept, Field of Vision is changing the paradigm for the creation and consumption of “news.”
