Devise documentary, win tickets to Documentary Edge

Now in its tenth year, the Documentary Edge Festival kicks off in Auckland next week and in Wellington in early June. As per usual, the festival offers a range of audio-visual delights from here and around the world to whet creative appetites. So suggest a topic in the comments section that deserves a documentary—such as the untold story of how long pies spend in the warmer at the dairy, the secret history of prime ministers and ponytails or a sordid expose on the media industry's descent into click-fuelled madness—and we'll give the best effort two tickets to a screening of their choice. 

Check out all the films and their screening times here. And as for what you marcomms folk might be interested in, here are a few options.
