FourDocs Calls For Compelling Films About Inspirational Women

FourDocs, the broadband channel for documentary, is calling for short documentaries with compelling female subjects, with the best ones being shown at a special event as part of the fourth Halloween Short Film Festival in January 2007.
The films, which can be made by men or women, should be about women who define their own terms, and the focus of the screening will be on independence and DIY culture.
FourDocs are interested in subjects who surprise and surpass gender roles, whether involved with traditionally male-dominated pursuits or by reclaiming traditionally feminine activities. Films might be about women inspiring with their independence now, or historical looks at ladies who've set the DIY pace in their chosen vocation or art form.
Films must be documentaries, and ideally between three and five minutes, in order for them to be screened on the FourDocs website as well as at the Halloween festival. Submission is only via the upload form on: www.channel4.com/fourdocs
Longer documentaries on DIY women will also be considered for the festival only via prior arrangement with Charlie Phillips at: fourdocs
Deadline for entries is Friday Nov 17. Any queries, please email above address.
