Istanbul Digital is looking for young Greek and Turkish media artists in their twenties to early thirties to produce short films that explore what unites and divides the two neighbor countries. The deadline to register online is Sunday 12 February 2012. The main project partner is the Center For Research And Action On Peace, based in Athens.
Associate partners include European Cultural Foundation, Aeolis, The University Of The Aegean, Centre Of Education and Intercultural Communication, Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University, Yildiz Technical University, and Anadolu University.
The overall theme of the North Aegean Narratives project is Rethinking Closeness and Apartness– Reconnecting with the Other Side. The ultimate goal is to foster mutual cultural understanding through open dialogue between Greeks and Turks. The project is co-funded by the European Union and the Government of the Republic of Turkey.
The eight Turkish and eight Greek filmmakers chosen to participate will first attend a documentary workshop before teaming up to work collaboratively on 16 short films that will later be screened in Adatepe, Athens, Çanakkale, Anadolu University in Eskişehir, Yildiz Technical University in Istanbul, and Mytilene. Finally a closing conference will be held in Istanbul to evaluate the project and share the results with a wider audience.
