African Women in the Time of Covid-19 Short Film Competition (Until 21st June 2020)
The recently announced Ladima Foundation short-film competition – aimed at African women during the world-altering Covid-19 pandemic and related lockdown – has already gained significant interest.
The competition is open to African women content creators and filmmakers of any age or experience level, currently living in Africa. The competition aims to encourage women to share their stories as we create a living document of a time and place – of the specific circumstances that women in Africa currently find themselves, under various degrees of lock-down, through the limitations on movement, opportunity, and often, basic freedoms.
With entries already being submitted, the Ladima Foundation is excited to announce the jury who will select the final 10 films from across all genres such as animation and fiction, documentary or interview style.
These 10 films will be streamed on the Ladima website along with other partner websites. Each winning filmmaker will also receive 500 EURO as well as access to a year’s worth of educational and inspirational webinars on the USA’s Women Make Movies platform,valued at approximately $500.
Any woman who is a citizen or permanent resident of an African country and who is currently living in Africa may enter. The competition opened at 9am Monday, June 1st 2020 and entries will close at midnight GMT + 2 on Sunday June 21st 2020.
