Following a successful first film and documentary festival in 2014, BBC Arabic announced its call for entries for its second festival, bringing films and documentaries about the Arab world to audiences in London.
The BBC Arabic Festival is accepting submissions (deadline: 13 May 2015) in four categories; short films, short documentaries, feature documentaries, reportage.
This year’s theme, ‘Rulers and Ruled: Power in a Changing Arab World’, will explore the struggles for power and control that continue to shake the region. Film and documentary makers, journalists and the general public who are exploring key issues around the Arab world are welcome to submit their work. People of all backgrounds are encouraged to take their chance with a creative or journalistic piece, conveying a unique, underreported story in response to the theme.
Full entry details on the categories, the theme, the judges and the annual Young Journalist Award are available on the website: BBCArabic.com/festival.
