CALL FOR FILMS

PocketVisions is calling for film submissions for the expanded London International Documentary Festival (LIDF) - A Conversation in Film, 2008. The festival is presented in association with the London Review of Books, and with the support of the British Museum, Curzon Cinemas and the UK Office of the European Parliament. 2008 sees a continued association with The Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival (New York).

The LIDF is scheduled to run for 6 days between Monday 31st March, and Saturday, April 5th, 2008. The opening night gala presentation and reception will take place at the British Museum, as will the closing day when three screens will run simultaneously all day in the Clore Educational Centre beneath the Great Court. Various other London venues are involved and full and final venue details will be posted shortly.

The call for submissions goes out to an international field of applicants. All successful applicants will be invited to be present at the LIDF. We are looking to support new and innovative filmmaking talent, and to ask filmmakers to participate in a series of intertwining ‘conversations’ to be run alongside the screenings. These ‘conversations’ will involve academics, journalists, policy-makers, NGOs, and other cultural commentators. The LIDF is calling for documentary films produced between January 1st 2006 and December 6th 2007, and is particularly, although not exclusively, interested in films that fall within the following categories:

* Environment * Human Rights * Memory/history * Ethnography/anthropology * Politics/Philosophy/Economics * Heritage and the Arts * Other social and development issues

Submission Procedure: Film-makers can enter their films, pay entry fees and find out how to submit their DVD or VHS preview copy at http://www.lidf.co.uk

Once the on-line submission has been made entrants will receive a confirmation email and a unique Entry Reference Number.

Deadline for Submissions: 6th December 2007 Late entries accepted until 30th December with penalty (see regulations). Films can only be returned if the ‘return fee’ is included in the submission.

Selected films from the LIDF will be automatically submitted for selection to the Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival, November 2008.

For further information or questions see the official LIDF web-site: www.lidf.co.uk or email: info@pocketvisions.co.uk

We look forward to seeing your films.
