Call for Submissions: Megacities Shortdocs
MegaCities ShortDocs is an association based in Paris supporting the production of short documentaries raising awareness about the urban challenges in Megacities around the world.
We are organizing an international contest open to journalism, audiovisual students and anyone else who has an interest in showing the world what is happening in their megacity regarding issues such as mobility, security, education, accommodation and much more.
We have already some universities supporting the project in Paris and Shanghai allowing more students to get involved, and also giving their universities an opportunity to improve their visibility across the world.
The 1st edition is taking place in New York, Shanghai and Paris.
After the selection phase by a professional jury and online votes, the best shortdocs will be screened during the MegaCities ShortDocs Festivals held in the three Megacities in September 2015.
1. To raise awareness among the population of Megacitizens and local institutions about the challenges that we are facing in our Megacities
2. To reveal new talented documentary makers
