CALL FOR ENTRIES : NINTH ANNUAL WE CARE FILM FEST 2012
  
 

Entries of documentary films are invited for 9th edition of We Care Film festival 2012 from anywhere from the world on the issues of disability.  

We Care Film Fest is an annual international travelling festival of documentary films on disability issues. It is organized by Brotherhood in association with the United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the National Trust and the Asian Academy of Film and Television (AAFT). This unique Festival began in 2003 and is now in its ninth year.


The Festival is an advocacy tool that seeks to bring about attitudinal and behavioral changes on approaches to disability, promote the inclusion of people with disabilities, and rid people of misconceptions, myths and prejudices surrounding disability issues. The Festival seeks to promote the rights of persons with disabilities as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) which came into force on 3 May 2008, as also the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995 (‘PWD Act’) and the National Trust Act, 1999.

 

The Festival’s uniqueness lies in the fact that it is a

1.
 Travelling film festival: Screenings are organized at 25 venues including educational institutions, universities and hospitals across India and the SAARC countries (Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bhutan). The next edition of the festival will begin in August 2011 and conclude in May 2012. We are expecting approximately 10,000 audience will watch and rate each and every film/documentary.
 
2.
 Involves a Participatory Rating Process (PRP) wherein the audience rates each film. An independent jury then judges the films on the basis of these ratings.
 
3.
 This process provides a unique opportunity to students to develop their understanding and perspectives relating to disability issues, and also contributes to the process of participatory rating.
