To celebrate the “16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence” global campaign, the U.S. Consulate General organized a film contest for Indian nationals. Video submissions of 3-5 minutes in length on women’s safety and empowerment in the form of stories, testimonials, ads, public service announcements, or any other format that promotes awareness about women’s safety were accepted. Videos had to be original work, produced within the past two years. The contest was open to Indian nationals residing in the five states of Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Goa, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.
The films of short-listed finalists will be shown at an event on December 5, 2014 at the U.S. Consulate General, Mumbai. Guest judges present at the occasion will select the winners. For more information, please visit: http://mumbai. usconsulate.gov/gbv_film_ contest.html
