Festivals Malta is organizing an audiovisual competition as part of the celebrations for the 39th anniversary of Freedom Day. Freedom Day is celebrated on 31 March to commemorate the day British forces left Malta in 1979.
The competition entitled ‘What does Freedom look and sound like for you?’ is open to the general public, barring professionals or regular practitioners in the audiovisual field. The competition will be between homemade videos filmed and edited exclusively with a mobile phone.
The video has to portray a visual and aural interpretation of the meaning of ‘freedom’ (ħelsien) today, beyond the celebration of a historical anniversary. Members of the jury will choose the winner on these merits: concept, creativity, and the quality of filming and editing.
The best three videos will be awarded. The creator of the winning video will receive a prize of €500. The second prize is €300 and the third prize is €200.
The video has to be sent in by noon of 22 March 2018 via WeTransfer or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Late applications will not be accepted. For more information send an email on email@example.com or call 23397000. Visit www.festivalsmalta.org to check out the competition’s terms and conditions as well as to download the application form.
