UNICEF Venezuela extends invitation of the Southern Peoples Film Festival

Caracas, March 2008 - As a continuation of its participation in the 2007 Latin-American Short-Films Festival, the Venezuelan Ministry of Culture has asked UNICEF-Venezuela for support in the publication of the bases for participating in its 2008 Southern Peoples Film Festival.

Organized by the Venezuelan Fundacion Distribuidora de Cine Amazonia Films, the festival aims at developing, harnessing and disseminating film productions from the Southern hemisphere that show the local culture in order to bring together professionals, creators and the audience to which their work is dedicated.

The 2008 Southern Peoples Film Festival intends to become a platform for debate, discussion and exchange, and above all, of mutual knowledge, which is expressed in the foundation’s invitation to participate.

The festival will accept participant productions from any Latin-American or Caribbean country, as well as from Spain, Portugal, Africa, Asia, Australia, Turkey, Russia, and Eastern Europe. The participating films, be it documentary or fiction, must have a duration of over 60 minutes for feature films, and up to 60 minutes for short films. They will only accept films produced after January 2006. The format should be 35 mm, Mini-DV or DV-Cam.

The festival will take place from the 13th to 17th of June, 2008 in the city of Coro, Falcón State, in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (UNESCO World Cultural Heritage).

 The registration deadline is April 15, 2008 and the registration form can be found at http://www.amazoniafilms.gob.ve/  or http://www.festivalesamazonia.org.ve/  and must be sent to festivales@amazoniafilms.gob.ve  or festivales.amazonia@gmail.com.
