"Powerful stories can change the world."
Calling all filmmakers! We wanted to share this exciting grant opportunity from the Berlin Feminist Film Week (BFFW), who has teamed up with filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy and the global campaign organization Purpose.
Submit your film by Friday, December 7, 2018 at midnight (23:59 CET - Central European Time; the timezone in Germany) and have the chance to receive a €10,000 grant!
From the BFFW website:
"Obaid Chinoy’s academy award winning documentary, A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness, ignited public outrage and political pressure in Pakistan, feeding a movement that eventually led to the banning of honor killings in the country. What started as a tale of one woman’s courage, resilience and strength in the face of terrible violence, became a symbol and rallying cry for those across the country and internationally campaigning to put such violence firmly in Pakistan’s past. This is the power of one story.
We are looking for global stories that touch on the themes of inequality, climate change, global health and/or gender inequality and that highlight women (or female identifying), like Sharmeen and Saba, who are fighting for change.
The winning filmmaker will be supported to develop and build a public engagement campaign to accompany their film, creating ways for the film’s viewers to take action on the issues depicted in the story and help create meaningful change in the world."
