West Midlands Filmmakers Invited to Submit Activism Shorts

By September 21, 2018Uncategorized

Modern Films, in partnership with UK SAYS NO MORE, is holding an open call to female filmmakers from around the UK for submissions of short films inspired by 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, which runs from 25th November to 10th December, between International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and International Human Rights Day.

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence is an annual campaign, which has run since 1991, and has 164 countries and 3,700 organisations involved. It uses the 16 days between International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25th November) and International Human Rights Day (10th December) to reinforce that eliminating all forms of violence against women is a human rights issue, and that the act of perpetrating violence against women is a human rights violation. The 2018 theme of 16 Days has been announced as ‘End Gender-Based Violence in the World of Work’.
