NISI MASA - the European Network of Young Cinema is happy to announce POLYGLOT - on the way to Turku, an audiovisual project exploring the subject of multilingualism. The initiative is supported by the Turku 2011 European Capital of Culture (Finland).
Online video contest
On the 1st July 2010, we launched a call for young Europeans aged 18-35 to submit short videos (5 mins max.) on the topic of multilingualism, in the following categories:
• Video Portraits (documentaries on My multilingualism)
• Video Poems (fictions on The language I dream in)
Contestants must upload their work onto the project’s interactive web platform, where the public and fellow video-makers will be able to view, comment and vote on the films, as well as read relevant articles.
The deadline for submissions is the 15th December 2010. The 18 winners, selected by online voters and a professional jury, will be the invited to participate in the next part of the project, the “Cine Boat” filmmaking workshop.
