Every initiative that promotes gender equality and addresses issues like gender-based violence must receive maximum participation. Coupled with a medium like film, such initiatives only serve to ensure maximum reach and interest.
The US Consulate, Mumbai recently announced its ’16 days of activism against Gender Violence’ global campaign, and to kickstart it in India, it opened a filmmaking contest from today, October 21, 2014. The contest theme is ‘Women’s safety and empowerment’ and seeks video submissions of three to five minutes duration on the theme.
Videos can be in the form of stories, testimonials, public service announcements, ads, or any other suitable format that stays true to the theme. Interested participants must send their complete videos and other relevant details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
