Apply now to MADE in MED short film contest and win participation at the Cannes Film Festival

The EU-funded Euromed Audiovisual III Programme invites all South Mediterranean filmmakers to apply to its short film contest “MADE in MED” and to win the possibility to take part to Cannes Film Festival 2013.

The competition is open for filmmakers from Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Syria and Tunisia, as well as for authors from other nationalities who live in one of the countries above.
The contest includes three different short film competitions around three subjects:
·                     Talking 'bout (A)rab Revolution – The Arab Spring in Focus
·                     Euromed-itation – Tales from the Mediterranean
·                     Preserving the Med – Environmental heritage around the Mediterranean
The duration of the short films must be comprised between 2 and 10 minutes. 
The deadline for submission of application is 28 February 2013.
In each competition, an international jury will select an awarder which will be offered the possibility to take part to the International Cannes Film Festival 2013 (travel + per diem + a 5 day-accreditation). The films and the authors will benefit from a promotion within the Short Film Cornerof the Cannes Film Festival (accreditation + networking + presence on the stand + participation to the conference and events).
Similarly, a public audience, voting for its favourite film, will choose the second winner (one per section), which will receive an honorific prize.
In total, six prizes will be awarded.
The best 30 selected short films - 10 per each competition - will be disseminated on the Internet from April 2013.
The Euromed Audiovisual III programme aims to contribute to the development and strengthening of the capacity of the film sector in the ENPI South region (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Syria, Tunisia) and to contribute significantly to mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and cultural diversity, in line with the Strategy for the Development of Euro-Mediterranean Audiovisual Cooperation, approved by Euromed culture ministers in Athens in May 2008.
