Waste of food film festival

“*Taste the Waste”: Call for Videoclips** for documentary film and
internet campaign*

Our Topic is the waste of food. You could show a huge amount of food
waste, but if possible try also to focus on alternatives or solutions to
avoid food waste.

Food waste occurs during production (on the fields), or during
distribution (on whole sale markets, transport, and in shops and
supermarkets), and during consumption (in restaurants, wedding banquets
or private households).

We need a ready clip of about 3 minutes length, comment in English or
text on screen, the interviews can be dubbed or subtitled, and we would
love lively music.

Or you just send us your raw material: It should contain enough scenes
so that we can cut a clip of 3 minutes. The video will be cut as a clip
with speed, so whether we get action in the scenes or we cut the images
in a quick rhythm – as a consequence we need a lot of footage to cut.

Please send first a short outline of what you plan in English, French or
Spanish to: _produktion@thurnfilm.de _
Please also specify which video format you want to use. To transfer the
footage we prefer that it is converted into a computer file so that it
can be uploaded on a server. Selected projects will get 300 $ to produce
the video.

We would thank you if you could forward this call for entries to
filmmakers or videoactivists that could be interested in participating
in the project. We are specially interested in videos from Asia, Africa
and Latinamerica.
