London, UK, 10th September 2013 – PUMA and The BRITDOC Foundation today announced the five finalists for the 2013 PUMA Impact Award. With a core belief in the power of film to change the way people, governments and corporations behave, the €50,000 award honours, celebrates and supports the documentary film that has made the most significant positive impact on society or the environment. PUMA supports documentary film because the medium can catalyse change and deliver impact.

The five impressive films cover topics ranging from a miscarriage of justice in the Philippines, to violence intervention and prevention on the streets of Chicago, through to bullying in US schools, an exploration of Indonesia's death squads and sexual assault in the US military. All of the projects have prompted remarkable and measurable change; change which will be assessed by a Jury led by activist and actress Susan Sarandon, actor and director Gael García Bernal and Ricken Patel, founding president and executive director of the world’s largest online activist community, Avaaz.
