SIMA is an international documentary and educational media competition honouring members in the independent film and global humanitarian industry. Our objective is to champion and promote the stories of independent filmmakers, journalists, aid organizations and grassroots change-makers that too often remain overlooked, and to provide a springboard for creative media that exemplifies excellence in its potential to inspire change.
