Filmmakers are invited to submit proposals to participate in a 4-day film production workshop that will take place from 6 to 9 December 2013.

The theme of the workshop is “Gestures”, which is part of a wider German arts initiative called “Flaming Gestures”.

The workshop is open to Zimbabwean filmmakers and will take place in Harare.

A limited number of short films will be produced during the workshop – from concept to completion – and these films will be screened at this year’s Zimbabwe International Film Festival, which is scheduled to take place from 10 to 14 December 2013.

Note: The proposed film should not have more 3 actors and must be limited to one or two locations only.

Proposals are to be submitted to by 5pm Central African Time on Wednesday 13 November. Selected participants only will be notified by Friday 22 November 2013. No late entries will be considered. The Selection Committee’s decision is final.
