We’ve Travelled All Over The World With David Freid And The MEL Films Team 

From a Swedish Cowboy theme park providing shelter to refugees to a little Irish island with a big Donald Trump problem, Freid and his intrepid documentary crew have added a regular touch of humour and warmth to a never-ending feed of depressing news. They have become a popular documentary destination for the Short of the Week team (and millions of other viewers). Freid and his team have picked up a legion of fans and a ton of Staff Picks on Vimeo over the last three years. Though this may be the end for MEL films, we hope to see more from Freid and friends in the near future, but first…a well earned rest!
