NHRC opens entries for its 4th annual competition for short films on human rights

New Delhi, Mar 19 (UNI) The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has opened the entries for its fourth annual competition for short films on human rights.
''The aim of the award scheme is to encourage and acknowledge cinematic and creative efforts of the Indian citizens, irrespective of their age, towards the promotion and protection of human rights,'' the Commission said in an official statement on Monday.
The entries received after July 2 will not be entertained.

The award carries a certificate along with prize money of Rs one lakh, Rs 75,000 and Rs 50,000 for the best first,second and third film respectively.

The short films may be in any Indian languages with either sub-titles in English or in English language. Duration of the short film should not be less than three minutes or more than 10 minutes. The films may be made in any technical format.

''The themes of short films, having a tinge of rights perspective, could be broadly-based on various socio-economic, cultural and political rights. These may be within the ambit of right to life, liberty, equality and dignity and raising concerns on issues, specific, among others, to bonded and child labour, children, women and other weaker sections, elderly persons, differently abled persons, healthcare, food, education, custodial violence and torture, domestic violence, clean environment, indigenous people, displacement, food and nutrition securities, issues of fundamental freedoms, human trafficking etc,'' it said.

The NHRC is completing its silver jubilee in 2018, hence short films may also be educative and informative about the human rights violation redressal mechanism in the country and challenges being faced by those involved in the promotion and protection of human rights.
There is no entry fee and bar on number of films sent by an individual for participation in the contest.
