Stop the Wall and itisapartheid.org are organizing the First International Israeli Apartheid Short Film Contest.
Please consider making and submitting a film to this contest by July 20, 2010.
The goal of this project is to raise awareness about Israeli apartheid in Palestine and create new tools to promote knowledge about the realities of Israeli colonialism, occupation and apartheid. These films should reflect the nature, realities, and/or consequences of the apartheid policy against the Palestinian people – whether in their homeland or in the diaspora. This film contest will showcase the creativity of the film producers in a way that will allow conversations around these issues to take place.
The video contest asks for submissions in any style: live-action, animated, stop-action, etc., and be no more than five minutes. First hand witnesses of apartheid, cinematographers and representatives of sponsoring groups will form different juries to judge the videos, while events organized in Palestine and abroad will act as popular juries for the videos. Four cash prizes of $300 to $500 will be awarded. We are further working to ensure that the overall winning video will not only have online exposure but will be shown in film festivals around the world.
