National Geographic is inviting filmmakers from around the world to submit entries for its All Roads Film Festival 2009, a unique cultural multimedia event that celebrates indigenous and underrepresented cultures. The deadline for submissions is March 15.
The festival provides an international opportunity for filmmakers to shed light on their lives and communities through first-person storytelling.
To be held in three US cities, the festival is accepting entries in the following categories: Dramatic Feature; Long Documentary; Short Documentary; Live Action Short; Animation; Music Video. Entry fees vary depending on the category.
Entry requirements include:
- Entries must include an English language version, through English language voice over or subtitle.
- All written submissions must be in English or Spanish.
- A brief essay describing the film must be submitted, as well as information on why the entrant has chosen a specific cultural identifier, and what that identifier means to them.
- For those who do not come from a minority culture or indigenous community, documentation that the entrant has been designated to speak for such a culture or community is required.
