Call for submissions: Udada (SISTERHOOD) International Women’s Film Festival - Kenya

Call for submissions:
Udada (SISTERHOOD) International Women’s Film Festival
16-20 October 2018

Submission deadline: 30 July 2018

The festival is the first of its kind in the region to feature the works of women in different genres; drama, comedy, fiction, documentary, animation and experimental film productions. It aims to empower women film makers from all walks of life. We believe that through this initiative, we will provide a platform for established and emerging female talents in the film industry. This platform avails opportunities for women film makers to exhibit their work, discuss and share their experiences and challenges. Network with professional film makers, meet their supporters and interact with other major players in the industry. In so doing, we aim to encourage social change and elevate women’s status at home and in the workplace. The festival has been running for four years now featuring, 

- Film screenings. 
- Filmmakers’ forum. 
- Capacity building workshops. 
- Co-productions with other festivals in Africa and the world over.

The 5th edition of UIWFF is slated for the 16th to 20th of October, 2018. This year’s theme is “If We ran The World…” We aim to have women from around the world, particularly Kenyan and African women to participate in this year’s theme by submitting a short video answering the question “IF WE RAN THE WORLD…” A hashtag will also be created to engage women and men around the world via social media.

Workshops that will be carried out during the festival:

- Sound capture, design and mixing and film scoring. 
- Creative writing 
- Acting 
- Dada Pitch, distribution and marketing
