Berlin Feminist + Activist Film Fund ausgeschrieben. Bewerbungsfrist: 7. Dezember 2018. €10,000 grant for filmmaker. Closing date: Dec 7, 2018
AVIVA-Redaktion

Die Berlin Feminist Film Week vergibt in Kooperation mit der NGO Purpose 2019 den "Berlin Feminist + Activist Film Fund" Unter dem Motto "Powerful Stories can change the World" sind Filmemacher*innen eingeladen, sich für den mit 10.000 Euro dotierten Projektfond zu bewerben. Berlin Feminist Film Week launches Berlin Feminist and Activist Film Fund: "Powerful stories can change the world". Screening and Panel discussion with filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and the organisation Purpose. Alle Infos dazu hier auf AVIVA-Berlin, more info at AVIVA-Berlin.



When filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy´s decided to tell the story of Saba Qaiseran, a young woman who survived an attempted honour killing in the Pakistani province of Punjab, nobody knew how much awareness Saba´s story would raise.

Obaid Chinoy´s academy award winning documentary, "A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness", ignited public outrage and political pressure in Pakistan, feeding a movement that eventually led to the banning of honor killings in the country. What started as a tale of one woman´s courage, resilience and strength in the face of terrible violence, became a symbol and rallying cry for those across the country and internationally campaigning to put such violence firmly in Pakistan´s past. This is the power of one story.
The Berlin Feminist Film Week is excited to partner with Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy and the global campaign organisation Purpose to provide a €10,000 grant for one filmmaker interested in engaging with German audiences to create a film to tell a story that needs to be told.

"We are looking for global stories that touch on the themes of inequality, climate change, global health and/or gender inequality and that highlight women*, like Sharmeen and Saba, who are fighting for change."
The winning filmmaker will be supported to develop and build a public engagement campaign to accompany their film, creating ways for the film´s viewers to take action on the issues depicted in the story and help create meaningful change in the world.

Film and activism: Screening and Panel discussion

We are super excited to partner with filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and the organisation Purpose to fund one exciting film project with the help of the newly set up Berlin Activist + Feminist Film Fund. On November 25th we invite you to celebrate the launch of the fund. In honor of the International Day of Elimination of Violence against Women and the fund´s inspiration, we will screen Obaid-Chinoy´s academy award winning documentary A Girl in the River and invite activists and filmmakers to discuss how film can be used as a tool for activism and to push for policy change."

Obaid Chinoy´s A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness, ignited public outrage and political pressure in Pakistan, feeding a movement that eventually led to the banning of honor killings in the country. What started as a tale of one woman´s courage, resilience and strength in the face of terrible violence, became a symbol and rallying cry for those across the country and internationally campaigning to put such violence firmly in Pakistan´s past. This is the power of one story.

Screening: A Girl in The River, 40 min
Panel:

Asli Özarslan, Filmmaker (Leyla, INSEL36) awarded with the UNCHR award
Leonie Holkenbrink, Founder of the Human Rights Film Festival & writer

Her second feature documentary, Dil Leyla, is her graduate film and it was nominated for the FIRST STEPS award.

Sarah Diehl is a writer, filmmaker and activist from Berlin, Germany. In 2008 she directed the film Abortion Democracy: Poland/South Africa, which analyses the changes on Polish and South African abortion laws and how this effects women. In 2014 she published the non fiction book "Die Uhr, die nicht tickt. Kinderlos glücklich. Eine Streitschrift" which analyses how the bad image of childless women pressures women into unpaid care work. In 2015 she co-founded the organization Ciocia Basia (Aunt Barbara) who helps women in Poland getting access to safe abortion.

Leonie Holkenbrink is the director of the Human Rights Film Festival. She holds an M.A. in Intercultural communication studies and has worked with different organisations and projects within the field of communication, amongst others for Amnesty International.
