Charlie Thorne, Director, UK
Not Yet Trending is an investigative story from inside Airbnb with a mission to find up-and-coming destinations before anyone else can. Here: Azores, a region of Portugal – in the middle of the Atlantic – where the islanders dwell in dormant volcanoes, the pineapples are the sweetest on the planet and, we discover, locals in the capital are fashioning their own hyper-creative downtown before your very eyes.

Gianni Casagrande, Artist, Sardinia
Artist Gianni Casagrande produces work that intends to draw a common narrative directly from the imaginations we all share; understandable in any language and by any eye, to the extent that everyone agrees.
George Butler, Artist, UK
George Butler is an award winning artist and illustrator specialising in travel and current affairs. His drawings, done in situ are in pen, ink and watercolour. Over the last ten years his desire to record scenes in ink rather than with a camera has meant he has witnessed some extraordinary moments; refugee camps in Bekaa Valley, in the oil fields in Azerbaijan, in Gaza with Oxfam, in Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, in a neo-Nazi murder trial in Munich.
His drawings have been published by The Times (London), Monocle, New York Times, the Guardian, BBC, CNN, Der Spiegel, ARD television Germany, NPR. His work has been shown in the Imperial War Museum North and the V&A Museum which also holds some of his work in the National Archive.
April Larivee, Art Director, USA
April works in brand communication specialising in asset development and design. Her work is can be found behind innovative concepts such as NIKEiD and Nike+ app.
Shafiur Rahman, Filmmaker, UK
None of the kids I spoke to go to school - declares Rahman, renowned documentary filmmaker. With a focus on migration, poverty and human rights Shafiur sheds light to the Rohingya children who collect plastic bottles in order to recycle them. For their efforts they are paid $2 for one and half bags worth of plastic bottles.
It takes a child a whole day to fill up one to two of these large sacks. The boys work six days per week, sometimes even seven. They often cut their feet stamping on the plastic bottles; almost a given since they don't wear any kind of shoe or sandal. The dust in the denuded mounds where they search for scrap plastic irritates their eyes. Bottles are also picked up from open drains, and in the absence of gloves and protective clothing in general, this can be a source of serious infection.
At Fabrik we have a role to play in helping filmmakers gain traction and respect for tackling difficult subjects and making it as easy as possible to share their stories with the world. Please get in touch with us if you have your own story to share.
