Water and Life: II Development Film Festival - Call for Productions

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by Krishnamurthi, Aug 31, 2006.

  1. Greetings from DHAN Foundation, INDIA!

    The Centre for Development Communication of DHAN Foundation is pleased
    to invite filmmakers to take part in

    The II Development Film Festival on Water and Life
    to be held in Madurai, India in September 28-30, 2006

    The Second Development Film Festival has been planned on the theme
    'Water & Life'. Water is life, physical, emotional and spiritual. It
    should not be considered merely as economic resource. The vital nature
    of water makes it possible cause of tension but, more importantly, a
    potential source of cooperation. Raising the public awareness and
    political will needed to implement sustainable water management
    requires multi-media strategies promoting the values of water, its
    efficient us, disaster mitigation, and the protection of water
    resources. The Festival will showcase the exemplary works done by the
    documentary film makers on the issues and dimensions of Water.

    If you have recently made a documentary, a short fiction film or a
    television programme on the theme of water that is ground-breaking in
    form or content, inventive, challenging or going beyond conventions, we
    are interested in screening your work.

    The Centre for Development Communication (CDC) of DHAN Foundation works
    towards promoting use of information and communication as a tool for
    development. Also it strives for working with print and electronic
    media for highlighting development work. As a step forward in this
    endeavor the CDC is organizing a Development Film Festival every year.
