NO FRILLS, NO ELITISM

Popular Front is conflict journalism done differently. We report on the parts of war big media rarely acknowledges, and talk to people they'll never find. We don't have corporate bugmen trying to dictate what we do either. This is all independent, funded by members through subscriptions and sponsorship. 

Popular Front is detailed, niche, and for everyone. You don't need a PhD or an invite to a journo dinner party to be in on this. We do serious work, but we don't take ourselves too seriously.

POPULAR FRONT DOCUMENTARIES

We make documentaries, news dispatches, and release raw footage too. From the start the aim of Popular Front has always been to gain enough momentum for us to do regular video reports. 

We include as much niche detail, under-reported information, and weird aesthetics in our video work as we do with everything else.
