The theme this year is experiences of women during the COVID-19 quarantine.
If you’re an Egyptian female filmmaker, here’s your opportunity to exhibit your skills through the Ladima Foundation Short Film Competition. The competition invites all women filmmakers and content creators currently residing in Africa – regardless of age or level of experience – to share their stories during this global crisis.
The competition is looking to hear from women about the impact of the Coronavirus lockdown, no matter their perspective - whether it's about its effect on their everyday life, the increased exposure to domestic violence, or any other story that speaks to women’s experiences. If you've got a story to share about how the pandemic has affected you, they want to hear it.
The ten winning films will be selected by a jury and then uploaded onto their website, along with various partner websites. Additionally, all ten filmmakers will be awarded EUR 500, in addition to free access to a year of webinars from the American Women Make Movies platform (wmm.com) – with the courses valued at about USD 500.
Founded in 2017 and based in Cape Town, the Ladima Foundation is a non-profit organisation seeking to support women residing in Africa in the TV and film industries.
The films must be two minutes long or under. Ladima are accepting submissions until June 21st at 12AM GMT+2. For more information on the requirements, or if you want to apply, register at ladima.africa/film-competition/
