Five films on immigration is needed


Palantír Film Visual Anthropological Foundation is looking for five documentaries on immigration. The films will be included in their Strangers in My Garden collection. Deadline is February 20th, 2013.

Palantír Film Visual Anthropological Foundation is currently looking for the rights of five documentary films, which were produced in the EU. The aim is to include these films in the Strangers in My Garden film collection, which already has 34 films available for educational and cultural purposes.

  •    -  The film should present its subject with sensibility and empathy, which helps the audience to know the problems better connected with the integration of immigrants and it also has to contribute to dissolve tensions
  •    -  Creative documentary films meaning non journalistic genres, non propaganda, non fiction
  •    -  Its technical and aesthetical quality guarantees the interest of the audience
  •    -  The film responds to recent European migration and incidents are described. The film focuses mainly on doubts raised about multiculturalism and / or the effect of social movements of Northern African expansion.
