FILM PRIZES AND AWARDS
The Royal Anthropological Institute is pleased to announce that the following Film Prizes have been awarded at the 12th RAI International Festival of Ethnographic Film, London, 23rd - 26th June 2011.
Get to know you hood ...
INVITATION TO THE PUBLIC:
My Street is many things.
It's where I live, it's where you live, it's an idea, it's your hood, your locale, your community, your neighbours, it could even be your corridor or your lift, mia strada, az én utcám, Sokaktaki, mera gallee, my street….
Now it is two more things: it's a competition for you to make a short documentary film about your "street" and it is a new, online website and channel where these films can be seen, telling the nation's story, street by street…..by you.
We all come from some place. We all live some place. But how much do we know about that place? So often in the city we have no idea where our neighbours come from, how they live, how they see us. Or, more likely, we have an idea, but it's wrong.
Go out and ask you neighbour who they are; chat to the man at the bus stop, ask the lady in the corner-store what she thinks of the street. You might be surprised what you hear, you might learn something, you might teach the rest of us something, you might make a work of art and you might play your part in tipping the world on its axis.
Anyone can engage. Anyone can contribute. Anyone can participate. Anyone can win the grand prize at the My Street Gala Presentation in June 2011.
The format, content and style of the films you make is entirely open. We simply want you to think about your street and make a film of 2 to 6 minutes about some aspect of it that interests you.
Films should be submitted to www.MyStreetfilms.com - going live December 15th
