We are very proud to present you the First International Social Action Film Festival in Berlin – 11th of October at Humboldt Viadrina School of Governance, Wilhelmstraße 67.
The International Social Action Film Festival Day is a powerful combination of the talent of filmmakers to tell a compelling story and the crucial work of social action organizations and individuals around the world solving pressing social problems.
A key to the sustainability of any successful social action organization is its ability to communicate its story to the largest possible audience.
The International Social Action Film Festival will provide that access.
From an illegal game of volleyball to the Grameen Bank
The movies presented ranged from the world’s most illegal game of volleyball, to the use of forced labour in Burma and to the most positive social change such as microcredits and the Grameen Bank.
This Festival is a compilation of international short movies mainly held in English, including 2 German movies “Drei Kinder, 2 Paten und 1 Baby” and “Wie Jothi dem Teufelskreis aus Armut und Prostitution entkommt” proudly presented by Petra Dilthey and Uli Schwarz from Care & Share.
The day will be divided in three sessions, starting with a selection of short movies – aiming at creating awareness on the topics of human rights and displaced people. The next session focuses on social entrepreuneurship, offering alternatives for improving society in all areas of life through businesses, banking, health…
At the end of each screenings, you will be invited to discuss the topics with invited experts and film makers.
The day will end with the feature length movie WAR/DANCE (Oscar nominated, 15 winning awards, including the Sundance Film Festival best documentary 2007); telling the story of ex-children soldiers in Uganda and their way out through dance and music.
We want to focus on social actions, exploring possibilities and solutions. The festival aims at illustrating the capability for each and every individual to take any action for social change. We invite you to be part of the change and make this festival a successful event we will hopefully see growning in the future.
