IberCultura Viva Programme releases the list of qualified videos for the short-film contest about Afro-descendant communities

The IberCultura Viva Programme published the final list of qualified candidates for the next stage of the short-film contest “Afro-descendant Communities: Recognition, Justice and Development”.

Out of the 132 videos enrolled, 90 were admitted - 57 from Brazil, 16 from Argentina, six from Chile, three from Costa Rica, three from Ecuador, three from Uruguay, one from Peru, and one from Mexico. The Organizing Committee decided to authorize the participation of two videos produced by migrants, coming from countries outside the competition, but residing in countries that are part of the program and with content from these same countries.

Launched by IberCultura Viva Programme and the Brazilian representation of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO in Brazil), the competition was accepting applications from November 20, 2017 to February 15, 2018.

The purpose of the competition is to select videos that promote reflection on Afro-descendant communities and the pursuit of the full exercise of their cultural rights and/or value their contribution to the constitution, promotion and development of the Ibero-American culture. Ten videos will receive prizes of 500 dollars. (Source: IberCultura Viva Programme)
