The site offers a series of short films documenting the lives of Iraqis in their own words.
These range from a piece on family men trying to protect their neighbourhood from death squads, to an interview with car bomb survivors.
The founder of Alive in Baghdad is Brian Conley, a 26-year-old American journalist and film-maker.
He went to Baghdad and gave equipment and training to the small team of Iraqis who now produce a new short film every week.
