Call for Entries: Council on Foundations Annual Film + Video Festival

The Council on Foundations and Grantmakers in Film + Electronic Media (GFEM) are seeking submissions of films and videos for the Council on Foundations 46th Annual Film + Video Festival, to be held April 28–30, 2013, in Chicago. Submission deadline is June 18.

The festival showcases films, videos, and television programs that have received support from foundations, corporate giving programs, and donor networks with the aim of encouraging grantmakers to use media to advance their philanthropic goals.

The committee will give special consideration to projects that demonstrate innovative strategies for distribution, outreach, public education, and civic engagement such as multi-platform distribution through websites, social networking, or mobile applications; distribution through schools, libraries, the meetings and conferences of nonprofit organizations; or other comprehensive distribution/engagement plans.
