Centre for Civil Society has announced the second edition of the international short film competition “EduDoc”. Entries can be sent till October 30, 2016. The duration of each film should be five minutes or less. The winning entries will be screened during the ‘School Choice National Conference’ at the India Habitat Centre on December 3, 2016.
The theme for this year’s edition is ‘Education: Challenges, Innovations, Celebrations’ which it aims to highlight through the audio visual medium.
“The idea of EduDoc International Film Festival emerged after the resounding success of Jeevika: Asia Livelihood Documentary Film Festival. Jeevika captured the livelihood challenges faced by the rural and urban poor, we thought of highlighting the challenges and rewarding the innovations in the education sector in order to inspire more such stories and edupreneurs,” said Associate Director of Centre for Civil Society Amit Chandra while announcing the film competition.
“The specialty of this short film competition is that it is focuses on the subject rather than the technology aspect of the films. The participants need to have a good subject, story and content. If anyone knows a good story relating to education, its challenges, he may even shoot it on his mobile camera and send it to us. This audio visual medium is a powerful tool in today’s tech savvy world which will help bringing isolated stories to the fore. It is our small step in the direction of spreading the wonderful work done by edupreneurs and inspire more such stories which in turn will help attain our right to education goals,” he added.
