Covid Stories – Submit a proposal for a R50 000 short film grant
Storytelling through film is a powerful tool to showcase local creative talent while raising awareness around society’s most pressing needs, to educate and to encourage action.
We’re inviting proposals for three grants of R50 000 each, for the production of Covid Stories, 3-5 minute documentary short films.
Through the Covid Stories documentary short film grants, OSF-SA seeks to help raise awareness around COVID-19 safety and prevention measures, while highlighting the impact that the pandemic has had on people’s everyday lives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in countless untold stories of the personal, economic and social impacts of COVID-19. These are stories of personal loss, loss of opportunities, domestic violence and the burden of care, but also of adaptability, resilience, hope and the promise of new beginnings.
What’s your story?
Grant proposals must be for original short films of no more than 5 minutes in length. Proposals will be assessed in terms of the relevance to themes related to the Covid-19 pandemic, originality of the story, artistic approach and the quality of previous work.
Deadline: 19 March 2021
