19.12.2017 / Created by IEMed

SouthMed WiA, a project funded by the European Union as part of its MedFilm regional programme, launched its second Call for Proposals, for strengthening the capacities of audio-visual operators in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia; to contribute to sustainable development and cultural diversity, by promoting gender equality and enhancing the image of women in the film sector.

The deadline for applications is 23 February 2018, 12:00 (CET).

The objective of this call for applicants is to support projects addressing weaknesses and issues related to gender equality and the under-representation of women in the audio-visual sector, both on the screen and behind the camera, including the perpetuation of stereotypes relating to the image of women in Arab societies, with the ultimate goal of influencing widespread cultural attitudes and public opinion. SouthMed WiA will support the beneficiaries of the grants during the implementation of the projects by providing capacity building activities and continuous coaching.

The present call contains three lots:
