Closed Call: Film Talents: Voices from Pakistan and Afghanistan

The Goethe-Institut and Prince Claus Fund were delighted to announce a new call for proposals: Film Talents – Voices from Pakistan and Afghanistan”. This joint collaboration offered young emerging filmmakers in Pakistan and Afghanistan the opportunity to take part in a mentorship programme for filmmakers through a series of five workshops to take place in 2017 and 2018 in the region.

Please note that applications went through the Goethe-Institut website and the deadline was 13 August 2017 at midnight AFT or PKT.

Who for? This Call was open to final-year film, multimedia and art students and recent graduates in these fields who were willing to commit to participating. Applicants were nationals of and reside in Afghanistan and/or Pakistan. Selected grantees were not restricted in theme or format (feature or documentary film). However, priority was given to themes of untold stories, that make unheard voices from Pakistan and Afghanistan heard, for national and international audiences.

Who by? The Workshops will be conducted by the Goethe-­Institut Karachi, the Prince Claus Fund and award winning Berlin-based filmmaker Till Passow in collaboration with Goethe-­Institut Kabul and a number of mentors, partners and trainers from Pakistan and Afghanistan. They will train the filmmakers on capacities in developing a film project, screenwriting, implementation of the idea, producing a trailer and pitching and presenting their project. The programme focuses on enhancing the career opportunities for young filmmakers both locally and internationally. 

Why? This collaboration between the Institut and the Fund was designed to help young filmmakers tackle the challenges they face and to bridge a gap between formal education in film and media in Pakistan and Afghanistan and actual production in the field. 

When? The workshops will take place in Karachi in September and December 2017 and throughout 2018. Each workshop is two weeks long.

Timeline of the Call for proposals:

Deadline to send in application13 August 2017 at midnight AFT or PKT.

Second workshop: 11 December – 22 December (tbd)
