Slovene Philanthropy wishes to invite all individuals interested in migration, intercultural exchange and coexistence in multicultural environments to participate in the film and video production which will take place from February to June 2014 within Pankultikum, the platform for intercultural exchange
Who can participate?
Individuals with migrant background as well as individuals with strong personal and/or professional interest in the topics listed above are invited to apply for participation.
Candidates’ previous experience with film/video production is welcome, but not a necessary condition for participation.
All candidates can present their ideas for video/film projects as individuals or as teams (which can be complete or not at the time of applying). In case of incomplete teams the organizers will assist participants with complementary skills in formation of project teams.
What kind of video and film projects are we looking to support?
Only projects with a clear focus on thematic fields of migration, intercultural exchange and coexistence in multicultural societies will be considered for support in realization.
There are no limitations regarding genre, length or approach to realization of proposed projects.
What kind of support will participants receive from the organizers?
Participants will receive continuous support by experienced experts coordinated by Romana Zajec. The expert support will take form of thematic workshops and continuous monitoring of development of indivual projects in all phases of the production process.
Slovene Philanthropy will provide participants with all the necessary technical (filming and editing equipment etc.), organizational and promotional support.
How will completed projects be promoted among local and international public?
All projects completed on time will be premiered during the 5th edition of the Festival of Migrant Film in Ljubljana (12th – 20th June 2014). The best of them will also be screened in Amman, the capital of Jordan, as part of the cultural exchange with young Jordanian filmmakers and video artists and activits.
All completed projects will be published on the promotional DVD of the Pankultikum platform as well as on the Pankultikum web portal.
Participants will also receive support in applying their products to local and international film festivals.
