“An international online Smartphone Short Film Festival focused on what it means to be a “global citizen” in today’s world of challenges, conflicts and complexities, toward making our world more equal, fair, peaceful and sustainable”
CARAVAN, an international peacebuilding non-profit affiliated with The Episcopal Church that uses the arts to build sustainable peace around the world, announces an “open call for submissions” for its GLOBAL CITIZEN Smartphone Short Film Festival.
This first juried edition of CARAVAN’s Smartphone Short Film Festival is focused on what it means to be a “global citizen” in today’s world of challenges, conflicts and complexities. As earth’s inhabitants, anyone around the world with a Smartphone (not just “filmmakers”) is invited to share their vision by producing a film that is three (3) minutes or less in length, of what it means to be a responsible member of this “global family,” toward making our world more equal, fair, peaceful and sustainable.
A “global citizen” is someone who is aware of and understands the wider world – and their place in it. “Global citizenship” requires that we see the world as a globe of interconnected persons and are prepared to take responsibility for our roles and its effect on the all of earth’s inhabitants. Everyone can be an agent of change to effect peace, harmony, justice and sustainability, toward building a brighter future. One of the most exciting ways of doing this is through film.
There are 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Honorable Mention Awards and Cash Prizes. The deadline for film submissions is August 16, 2019.
CARAVAN is hoping to have as many as possible from around the world participate by submitting a short film on the “global citizen” theme produced from a Smartphone.
