POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews- Film Call
February 27, 2019
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews is launching an international competition for short films about Jewish communities with roots in the historic territories of Poland.
The fourteen shortlisted films about Jewish communities living today in North America, Latin America, Europe, Australia, South Africa, Israel, and Poland will be featured in an epilogue to POLIN Museum’s multimedia narrative exhibition, which is dedicated to the 1000-year history of Polish Jews.
The films should reflect the connection of these communities to the heritage of Polish Jews. They may focus on stories of individuals, families, organizations, communities, events, or objects that carry special meanings.
Films of about 5 minutes in length may be based on interviews, documentary and archival material, home video, animation, or video art, among others.
An international jury will select the finalists.
Deadline for applications (logline, synopsis, treatment): 31 August 2019.
Anouncement of winners: October 2019.
Each of the fourteen finalist will receive up to 56,000 PLN (about 15,000 USD) to produce a short film, the amount depending on the project.
