HumanDOC International Documentary Film Festival GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT IN CINEMA

2nd HumanDOC International Documentary Film Festival: GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT IN CINEMA


 We are pleased to invite all filmmakers and TV producers who would like to take part in the HumanDOC International Documentary Film Festival:Global Development in Cinema. The festival will be held in Warsaw, Poland from November 12th -17th 2011 at Kinoteka in Palace of Culture & Science in Warsaw.

Through the screenings of selected productions we would like to bring our festival audience closer to current problems of people living in developing nations, and to provide them with deeper insights into the politics
of global development and various issues related to international aid for economically depressed countries.

We are looking for original, wise and objective productions (documentaries, reportages and social advertising) that will increase the awareness of the viewers on problems of injustice and depravation in developing nations. What we seek are productions that will raise important questions about the state of our contemporary world, and urge people to reflect on the meaning of help for those in need.

We are looking for:
* Documentary films,
* TV Reportages,
* Social advertising/campaigns related to developmental issues.

We are especially interested in themes such as:
1. Interdependence of the Global North and Global South.
2. The ones set out in the UN Millennium Development Goals.
3. Everyday problems of people living in developing countries.
4. Examples of help brought by donors, international organizations, governmental agencies and NGOs - both positive and those who have not been successful.
5. Social advertising/campaigns about UN Millennium Development Goals or development issues.

The Festival will present the best documentaries and commercials on subjects related to developing nations from around the world. We would like to show productions that increase the awareness about the countries' dependency on international aid. We hope that people who will participate in our festival will learn about how global issues affect the everyday lives of people and societies around the world, and how each and every one of us can get involved and make a positive change for people in poorer nations.
