December 2012 | The Diversity in Place Film Fest in collaboration with the Center for Place, Culture & Politics opens up its 5th annual international call for short films on URBAN UPRISINGS.
“In the wake of the 2008 explosion of the current economic crisis, more and more people are actively fighting to restore what they’ve lost. Not since the ‘60s have so many people across the globe taken to the streets to demand a more just and democratic society, access to housing, health care, education, food, jobs, a clean and safe environment and lives free from police violence. Most of these uprisings are rooted in the urban landscape. Many of their demands imply a major transformation in the way our cities work.”
Share with us your stories of urban uprisings, current and alternative visions of how to build new communities and a new city, and the current work being done toward this end. Submission deadline: April 20, 2013.
The Diversity in Place Film Fest will take place in Honolulu, Hawai‘i June 15-16, 2013.
