Diversity in Place Film Project Iniative

This December, The Diversity in Place Film Initial Fest in collaboration with the Center for Place, Politics and Culture opens up its 5th annual international call for short films in the upcoming 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.”

So, leaders in this program are looking for stories of urban uprisings, and current as well as alternative ways to how to build new communities and a new city. The diversity in Place Film Fest will take place in Honolulu, Hawaii June 15 through June 16, 2013. The deadline to submit for this amazing program is April 20, 2013. Here are the guidelines:
