global dialogues, video challenge

International public health organization, Global Dialogues, has issued a call for entries for their latest video challenge. The theme this year is Love, Freedom … Pregnancy?

Each year, Global Dialogues challenges filmmakers of any walk of life, discipline or skill level to participate in a challenge where they kick off a story and it is up to participating filmmakers to complete the story with their own vision in two minutes or less.

For this challenge, the three minute intro video was Directed by Sergio Ramirez of Guatemala and produced by Javier Donis of the Fundación Pro Desarrollo Pro.

The goal in this particular challenge is to continue the story they’ve started in a way that reflects a vision of a better world. They want to see different takes on how the characters in the intro video can come up with positive solutions to the problems they are facing.

The contest is open now through August 31, 2014, with voting running through September 15, 2014. A filmmaker from each of Global Dialogues regions (The Americas, Africa, Eurasia/Pacific) will gain exposure to all regions as well as win $1000.
