The U.S. Consulate General Mumbai launched its fourth annual short-film contest on the theme of women’s safety and empowerment in Mumbai. The yearly contest is part of the U.S. Consulate’s partnership with Indian artists, civil society advocates, and others to promote safety, dignity, and equality for women and girls through the creation and dissemination of short films on the topic.

The short film contest is open till November 10, 2017, by which time filmmakers, writers, and advocates are invited to submit video entries of up to five minutes in length that offer succinct, creative, and compelling messages. Video entries may be in the form of stories, testimonials, advertisements, public service announcements, or other creative forms of messaging that advance public awareness of women’s safety and empowerment or that offer practical solutions to these pressing challenges.

The film contest is open to Indian nationals residing in the U.S. Consulate Mumbai five-state consular district that includes Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra. Submissions may be in any of the following languages: Chhattisgarhi, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Konkani, Marathi, or Urdu. Entries not in English should include English subtitles. Each entry must be an original work and produced within the past two years.

A jury panel will then select winning entries from short-listed films at a gala screening and award ceremony in Mumbai in early December that coincides with the observation of the “16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence” global campaign.
