2016 EU Human Rights Short Film Competition

The 2016 EU Human Rights Short Film Competition, organised by the EU Delegation in Turkey, invites amateur and professional filmmakers to submit an original short film on a human rights theme.

The aim of the 2016 EU Human Rights Short Film Competition is to raise awareness of and encourage reflection on human rights issues by giving participants the opportunity to tackle this topic from a cinematic point of view as well as offer them a platform for presenting their films.

The finalist films will be screened as part of the 6th European Union Human Rights Film Days set to be held in December 2016.

The winner will be awarded an HD camera and lens, the first runner-up will be awarded an HD camera, and these plus the second runner-up will all win an accredited trip to Germany’s Oberhausen Short Film Festival.

The deadline for entering the competition is 16 November 2016, at 18:00.

10 finalist films will be pre-selected, and the main contest jury will select the three winners.

The results will be announced during an Awards Ceremony to be held in Ankara on the evening of Saturday, 10 December.
