For the spring of 2017, BBC Arabic Festival's 3rd edition, once again, invites fiction and non-fiction films that reflect on the region today. In its 3rd edition, the BBC Arabic Festival will look back at the hopes, visions and reformations that continue to shake the region.
The unprecedented changes that have taken place over the past few years have unleashed global concern. What changes have you seen in Arab society? How have they affected the rest of the world? What kinds of changes have Arabs elsewhere experience?
The BBC Arabic 2017 Festival is now accepting films that tell real stories and ask pertinent questions. An expert panel of judges will be looking for originality, wit and creative interpretation along with clarity, balance and in-depth research in the telling of personal and powerful fiction and non-fiction stories.
If you are a film or documentary maker, producer, journalist or a member of the public and have made a piece of work (a film, documentary or journalism piece) that explores key issues around power in the Arab world, then the BBC would like to hear from you. Professionals and non-professionals alike are encouraged to submit their entries.
Application can be submitted in English and Arabic.
