The EU-funded MedFilm4all project has launched its first call for proposals, which will stay open from 26 February to 12 April 2018. This first call for proposals will support six initiatives covering seven Southern Mediterranean countries: Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Occupied Palestinian Territory and Libya.
Priority will be given to projects designed to widen the access to films tackling gender issues, with a special focus on youth in rural areas, improve the representation of women, and empowering women professionals in the film industry.
Projects have to last between 12 and a maximum of 15 months, according to the types of activities carried out. During this period, sub-grantees will implement actions concerning educational activities and/or distribution activities and/or raising awareness and advocacy to improve the access to films.
The budget of the first call for proposals is €492,000. Any grant requested under this call for proposals must fall between a minimum of €70,000 and a maximum of €82,000.
The deadline for submission of applications is 12 April 2018 at 21:00 (GMT).
MedFilm4all is a 36-month EU-funded project that aims at contributing to human development and gender equality through the diffusion of audio-visual products addressing social issues in the Southern Mediterranean region.
The project is part of the MedFilm programme, a regional programme of the European Union.
