Short film for community can get you UNESCO mentorship
CEMCA has partnered with UNESCO for the 5th Edition of Community Radio Video Challenge (CRVC) which will be based on the theme of "Women Empowerment". Entries will be invited from students below 26 years from all disciplines from across the country. CEMCA has been conducting this competition for the last five years with an objective of connecting the youth to the great potential of Community Radio as a tool for community development and empowerment. In this competition, students can come up with films of 3 to 5 minute duration on the given theme which connects to "Community Radios". This year, the competition has been thrown open from October 15 onwards and the last date for submission is January 15, 2018. The maximum entry from an institution should not be more than two.
Students will be expected to make short films on sub-themes like 'Community Radio as a means to strengthen women leadership', 'women in business', 'women's role in health and nutrition', 'women against domestic violence', etc. A panel of distinguished jury of filmmakers and developmental communication experts will come together to choose the prize winners. The films will be screened in UNESCO on the occasion of World Radio Day and International Women's Day where the winners will be felicitated. The prize winners – which will include first, second, third prizes and five special recognition awards – will be given mentorship on filmmaking for developmental communication by experts identified by UNESCO, besides cash prizes from CEMCA.
