With entries already being submitted, the Ladima Foundation jury will select the final 10 films for the competition.
The Ladima Foundation short-film competition, aimed at African women, has announced the jury members for its 2020 edition.
The judges include Cornélia Glele, Lizelle Bisschoff, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Professor Martin Mhando and Philippa Ndisi-Herrmann.
The competition is open to African women content creators and filmmakers of any age or experience level, currently living in Africa. The competition aims to encourage women to share their stories, under various degrees of lock-down, through the limitations on movement, opportunity, and often, basic freedoms.
With entries already being submitted, the Ladima Foundation jury will select the final 10 films from across all genres such as animation, fiction, documentary or interview style to name a few. The films must be under two minutes and focus on the themes including domestic violence or abuse in the time of Covid-19, the economic impact on work-life and hope in the time of Covid-19.
These 10 films will be streamed on the Ladima website along with other partner websites. Each winning filmmaker will also receive $564, as well as access to a year’s worth of educational and inspirational webinars on the USA’s Women, Make Movies platform valued at approximately $500.
Any woman who is a citizen or permanent resident of an African country and who is currently living in Africa may enter. In order to enter, a participant must register on the A-List. Entries must be received by midnight 12:30 am on Sunday, June 21.
